Description: In swamp forest. These fig trees produce prop-roots from the stems. These then grow new main trunks - and so the tree expands outwards to form a multi-stemmed tree covering a large area (see second photo). Canopy 15 m high. Young branches are light coloured and smooth, but the bark darkens and becomes knobbly and rough with age.

Galls that had a brown colouring (last photo), all had cream-coloured larvae with a black head feeding inside (see interaction). I could not see anything inside the green coloured galls - maybe the larvae still needed to hatch?
