Ficus hispida (Wikipedia)
Ficus oppositifolia Roxb.
Ficus hispida is a small but well distributed species of tropical fig tree. It occurs in many parts of Asia and as far south east as Australia. There is a large variety of local common names. Like a number of ficus, the leaves are sandpapery to touch. An unusual feature is the figs which hang on long stems.
