In their 1914 Flora of Jamaica, William Fawcett and Alfred Barton Rendle linked Sloane's illustration to the tree species that was then known as Ficus suffocans, a name that had been assigned to it in August Grisebach's Flora of the British West Indian Islands.[12] Gordon DeWolf agreed with their conclusion and used the name F. maxima for that species in the 1960 Flora of Panama.[13] Since this use has become widespread, Berg proposed that the name Ficus maxima be conserved in the way DeWolf had used it,[9] a proposal that was accepted by the nomenclatural committee.[3]
