I’m attaching herewith one Ficus sp. for your identification. If you can identify this Ficus sp. I shall be very grateful to you.
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.

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.
