An ecologist colleague asked me for help in determining the authority for
a species of fig, *Ficus maclellandii*.  This name was supplied by the
Florida firm that supplied his stock - and who have not responded to his
query for more information.  I don't locate the combination in the Index
Kewensis, so I am suspicious of its reality.  Are any of you familiar with
this name?  Any leads or ideas?  I understand its common name is Ali fig.

                                        Thanks very much,
