Ficus for ID : 070511 : AK-1: Taken at Khandala on the 24th of March, 2011.


Agree with …. This is Umber [Fius racemosa]. 


Ficus racemosa we call it Jagya Dumur in Bengali


Ficus glomerata is in agreement with ID discussed; it is a synonym of Ficus racemosa


Ficus racemosa Linn. is earlier name (1753). F. glomerata Roxb. is later name for the same.

Ficus racemosa L. (Moraceae), Locally known as Gular in Hindi, Umbar in Marathi

Affirmative. This is Umber [Ficus racemosa]. Leaf galls are seen. This is one of mine.


I too think that this is *Ficus raceamosa *of Moraceae,* *sapling stage.



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/190920111760.jpg/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/190920111756.jpg
Has anyone seen the flower of this tree . I learn that the flower is within the fruit.
Would like to see the pic if possible.
My gardner told me some story that it is very rare to see the flower of this tree. Only blessed people get to se it. It is a huge flower as big as a cart wheel and very pretty? What is this he is talking about or just a myth.
Also there is some gum like white thing on the bark. Is it gum?

This looks like Umber [ Ficus racemosa syn .Ficus glomerata]. The fig is a syconus with the flowers turned outside in. Please read Pradip Kishen’s ‘Trees of Delhi’ pages 321 – 323 to get a proper perspective on the nature of the flowers and pollination process.
My photographs are available at this link :
https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/25…


I have seen a lot of these fruits on the tree.
It is opposite my house but what I want to see are its flowers . I learn that they are within the fruit but the flower should bloom before the fruit so why do we not get to see it. Has anyone ?


If you want to see the flowers of Ficus you have to split open the figs at its early-mid stages (mostly before it turns its color).
In bisexual figs the male flowers would be arranged very close to the ostiole (small opening at the opposite end of the stalk) and the female flowers are seen at the base towards the stalk.
In some cases you may see only male or female flower in one fig or figs of an individual (eg. *Ficus tictoria*).


Attaching pics of cut unripe fruit. but I cannot follow the flower identification.


So called unripe fruit of yours is an inflorescence containing flowers and known as hypanthodium. When ovary ripens and the colour changes, it turns into syconus fruit.


Having read about this type of inflorescence I now understand that figs and wasps are a clear example of
coevolution<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coevolution>.


There is another small Audumbar tree in my vicinity. This is what I found on its leaves. They also looked like the fruits but how can it be on the leaves. Yet  I cut open them open and there was an empty cavity. Please identify.


yes they are, they are insect galls


ps.. often a gall is enlarged cell/s of the leaf itself in reaction to injury often by insect bites, larvae or eggs attachments… I have seen slimy stuff around or inside some very large galls on leaves… I personally would not dissect on one inside the house or near my healthy plants..
not knowing plant pathology too well, I would stay away from opening them inside the house or near my cherished plants…


I cut this galls in my house not knowing what they are. So far I am surviving ha ha.
Some interesting info. When I asked the local gardner he said they eat this if someone has aphthous ulcers or glossitis. Shocking isnt it?


Galls are produced not only by insects [Thrips,Waspa & Flies] but even by Mites. Gallic acid produced by the above induces ‘cancerous’ growths on the plant within which they live and feed.
 My photographs of galls on the leaves of Umber are in this thread and my previous photographs are also in the archives of this group.


Thanks for adding MITES and Gallic acid…
I had forgotten about Gallic acid…
that’s the Gallic acid of pyrogallol etc, I guess.
I found your earlier gall picture (one of many) at this url:
http://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/attach/6f7e53763e32eba7/…
spectacular picture…..

For some reason the mail did not show up. Am posting the photographs again. These are mine.

Figs Of Bangalore – RA – Ficus racemosa – Cluster Fig Tree:  Goolar is an attractive fig tree witha crooked trumk and a spreading crown. Unlike the banyan, it has no aerial roots. The most distinctive aspect of this tree is the red, furry figs in short clusters, which grow directly out of the trunk of the tree. Those looking for the flower of goolar should know that the fig is actually a compartment carrying hundreds of flowers. One might wonder how these flowers enclosed in a ball are pollinated. The flowers are pollinated by very small wasps that crawl through the opening in search of a suitable place to reproduce (lay eggs) Without this pollinator service fig trees cannot reproduce by seed. In turn, the flowers provide a safe haven and nourishment for the next generation of wasps.
Goolar is a tree commonly found in cities and towns. It has evergreen leaves, if it is close to a water source. Otherwise it sheds its leaves in january.
Figs have been traditionally used by children to play. Thin sticks can be joined by inserting them in goolar figs to make interesting shapes.

Can someone please identify these rounds on the leaf?

This is most likely a small Banyan plant.


These are insect galls. Insects produce in quite a few plants.


This is a leaf of Umbar, Ficus racemosa. It’s very often covered in these galls.

Tree ID request – RK77 – 29-Dec-2012: Requesting id of this tree from Tungareshwer. The leaves have milky latex.


Isn’t it Ficus racemosa?


It is pure guessing but yes I also think this to be Ficus racemosa.

1) The leaves are glabrous here…..may be they are young tender.

2) It may not have been written anywhere but; My observation: Many a times the first basal pair of side veins on the leaf of उम्बर Ficus racemosa is at acute angles to the midrib as compared to subsequent pairs of veins which are more obtuse and parallel to each other. This can be seen here in the leaf photograph


Yes Ficus racemosa Linn., Umbar


… for identifying this tree. It looked a bit different from the appearance of the Umbar trees in the city which are loaded with figs so I had a doubt it might be something else. Thanks … for sharing your interesting observation of the venation of Umbar leaves.

I don’t think it is F. racemosa because their stem, fruits and leaves are not same. Ficus racemosa’s picture is attached herewith for your comparision


The tree in this photograph does not look like Ficus racemosa to me. Your original photographs are of the Wild Fig Tree [F.racemosa].

Some of my photographs for comparison are available at these links


The photographs are identified as Ficus racemosa L. earlier they are considered as F. glomerata Roxb. var. chittagonga (Miq.) King. Now this variety is merged under Ficus racemosa L. (= Ficus glomerata Roxb.).

Ficus Id from Bangladesh_SM_1443 : 13 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (2)

Habitat: Along the sangu river
Location: Sangu Matamuri Wildlife Sanctuary, Bandarban 
Picture taken: February, 2019

Possibly a variety of F. racemosa.

Pl. check comparative images at Ficus


Ficus racemosa.

To me figs look different from those at Ficus racemosa


I have gone through many literature and publications to identify these images which are similar to … from Mizoram. And still working to get identified.
None of reported species match to these photos and as earlier I had told that there could be chances of new species or variety.
Since receptacles resemble Ficus auriculata and in various literature found much closer to F. oligodon considered to be synonymous.
Therefore there might be chances of new subspecies or variety of F. auriculata/oligodon with much linear and lanceolate leaves with serrations to upper 2/3 leaf lamina.
As per BSI and Flora of China F. auriculata and F. oligodon both are different species on the basis of leaf morphology, but synonymous as per TPL.


Thanks … Let me inform if you get any conclusion.


Chances of F. auriculata are remote as leaves are quite distinctive.


The photographs are temporarily identified as follows: 
Ficus racemosa L.var. elongata (King) Barrett  (=F. lanceolata Buch.-Ham. ex. Roxb.) 

more i read about classification of Ficus order, more there is to read.
start with this, … you also need to do some reading. you have access to the plant in question. we only have two pictures sans details. references that should help you 
2 is “Synopsis of the Genus Ficus L. (Moraceae) in India”  must be helpful
this is about fruits of ficus genus and all its lower taxa
site devoted to classification of Ficus

and this is just a needlepoint sized tip of the huu…..uuge iceberg…

Fruits look like those of a Ficus.


I think it is from Mizoram as … is posting from Mizoram only.


Receptacles distinctly pedunculate and large;

Ficus auriculata Lour.

Leaves with inflorescence are of some Salix sp.


Does leaves belongs to same plant, if so it may not be Ficus auriculata Lour., pl check,


After going through the second post for this plant as per Flora of Mizoram Vol 2 by Sinha, Singh & Singh (2012); based on morphological characteres this species has not beed described by the Authors.

There may be chances of new species for Mizoram.


I’m really really sorry for inconvenience,

Ficus squamosa Roxb.
It difficult to follow a single Flora, according to Flora of Mizoram leaves are always entire and in images they are totally toothed. After going through other North eastern Floras, leaves have various margins.
It is now confirmed species

Commonly found along rivers, common to see in Mizoram at Saling Lui, Saijak River and Tuichar Cave.


Looks different to me from Ficus squamosa. Could you please check ?
