The olive leaf fig is named for the leaves which resemble olive leaves. However, this common fig species is highly variable with many different morphs. This morph that I found have elongated thick oval leaves instead. It grows as a short shrub or small epiphyte usually less than 1m tall. Fruits are smooth and hard, about 1cm in diameter. The black rounded things are gall containing fig wasp cocoon.
Growing on the forest floor in the montane rainforest of Sabah.
