The taxonomy of several, mainly stoloniflorous, Ficus species from Thailand and Malesia is revised resulting in a new species, F. bukitrayaensis C.C. Berg and two new names, F. malayana C.C. Berg & Chantarasuwan and F. ridleyana C.C. Berg & Chantarasuwan. Ficus megaleia Corner and F. uncinata (King) Becc. are redefined and F. heterostyla Merr. is reinstated. Ficus arfakensis King and F. scortechinii King are reduced to synonyms of F. ribes Blume.
