Morphology

4A willow-leaved form is known from the Philippines. 2Several collections with very large laminas, often with subcordate bases, with petioles up to 12 cm long, and fig receptacles up to 3.5 cm diam. (when dry) have been made in Central Celebes. 1The plant parts are usually glabrous, but material from the Philippines may be white strigose or white to brown hirtellous to subtomentose on leafy twigs and petioles. The lamina of this hairy form can be lanceolate. A form with white substrigose leafy twigs and petioles occurs in the Solomon Islands. 3A cauliflorous form with the figs on slender leafless branchlets up to 60 cm long on the trunk occurs in Australia (Queensland) and the Solomon Islands.
