Photographs are identified as a Ficus racemosa L. It is highly variable species. Different earlier varieties of this species are merged under typical F. racemosa. Thanking you.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for correcting, after close observation white spots on figs and clusters realize me that this is Ficus variegata.

Sir, the figs and leaves are same tree as you seen. If this is Ficus racemosa, My post no. MS May. 2017/07 also should be Ficus racemosa in stead of Ficus auriculata because they are same species.

Sir,

Please find attached similar kind of figs and leaves tree located in AJCB, Indian Botanic Garden, Howrah which was identified by me as Ficus racemosa L. 

Photos took by me in May 2012.

Any how for final confirmation of any species the specimen should be verified physically.


Thanking you

A reply from another thread:
"Going through both posts by Sawmliana ji non of both are either Ficus racemosa or Ficus auriculata. 
With so much variation in leaf morphology images in both posts should be of Ficus variegata.
The reason is, though figs resemble to F. racemosa but inflorescence pattern, white spots on figs and leaf shape (leaf blade base rounded to shallowly cordate in Ficus variegata).
Kind regards,
Varun"

It is not Ficus auriculata, but it seems Ficus oligodon.

Who identified it ?
Ficus oligodon is as syn. of Ficus auriculata as per POWO.
However, going by GBIF specimens (one and two) of Ficus oligodon from India, it seems possible.

Sir, it is not Ficus racemosa. It is a small evegreen tree. Ficus racemosa is middle-sized to large deciduous tree. Leaves are also different.
