Interpreting from raphides

These are raphides attached with the ritual pottery (ethnographic material) in Papua New Guinea.

This residue sample did not contain any starch granules. If I can explore its candidate plant species, the cooking contents of this pottery can be specified.

As to the modern reference collection, raphides extracted from Alocasia odora (Lodd.) Spach are like this.
