Enclosing some clues for further clarification please!
1.The Plant List
Ficus hirta var. triloba (Buch.-Ham. ex Voigt) Kuntze is a synonym of Ficus hirta subsp. roxburghii (King) C.C.Berg.
2.Book from Nepal
Ficus hirta Vahl
   Ficus hirsuta Roxburg
   Ficus triloba Wallich
3. Ficus hirta Vahl subsp. triloba not listed in the Annotated checklist.

POWO, GBIF, CoL and WFO says Ficus hirta subsp. triloba (Buch.-Ham. ex Voigt) L.B.Chaudhary is a syn of Ficus triloba Buch.-Ham. ex Voigt, whereas PNI says the opposite.

POWO and WFO are most updated floral database available online (I had already confirmed with Kew Taxonomy Department), The Plant List website is now superseded, even COL (Catalogue of life) also follow POWO and (World Plants).
