This member of the Moraceae family
was given this name by Friedrich Anton Wilhelm Miquel in 1867. It is found in
southern India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Andaman Island, Thailand and western Himalaya, growing in the dry deciduous forests in
clay to a well drained soil with quite some water water and some to lots of sun. The stem can grow to
30 centimetres in diameter, the entire plant
to ten metres in height. The flowers are greenish.
The genera name originates
from the old Latin name for Ficus carica which was from the
Persian word fica. The species name
after the Scottish botanist George Arnott Walker-Arnott, 1799-1868.
