    Place of taken : Rawpuichhip, Mamit district, Mizoram
    Date : 28/02/14
    Altitude : ca. 500 m.


    Is it Ficus sp. ?


    It is near to Ficus prostrata Wall. ex King which is commonly growing in Northeast India, Bangladesh, China and Vietnam. Specimen is need for final confirmation.



    Ficus lamponga ??


    Thanks, … To me also appear close to images at Ficus lamponga

    This should be Ficus prostrata (Wall. ex Miq.) Buch.-Ham. ex Miq., in this figs/receptacles appearing on leafless branchlets, whereas in F. lamponga receptacles born on leafy branchlets.


    Sorry for wrong email, images are much different and complete plant profile is not available.
    This should be F. lamponga Miq.

    I think it is Ficus lamponga Miq.
