These artefacts have both remnants of ashes and carbonised incense inside, which could be related to the production of incense from Dipterocarpaceae
trees (a tropical Asian tree family).

Also, chemical analysis revealed that the sap that formed the amber came from Dipterocarpaceae
trees, which are common in tropical forests of Southeast Asia," says Grimaldi.
In Indonesia in 1989 it was found that Dipterocarpaceae
form ectomycorrhizae with mycorrhizal fungi, among which Scleroderma columnare enhanced the seedling growth efficiently in nurseries and that a small amount of charcoal (2% in volume) stimulated the growth of Shorea species and mycorrhiza formation (Ogawa 2006).

Researchers recently confirmed that members of the tree family Dipterocarpaceae
, common in Africa and Asia, grow in South America as well--a finding they liken to discovering, say, kangaroos in South America.

Contort petals occur in Cistaceae (Eichler, 1878), Cochlospermaceae (Poppendieck, 2003), Dipterocarpaceae
(Rao, 1962; Ashton, 2003), Malvaceae sensu lato (Eichler, 1878; Rao, 1952; Bayer, & Kubitzki, 2003), and Sarcolaenaceae (Bayer, 2003).
The family plant of Dipterocarpaceae
is one of the biological diversities of Indonesian plants and it is widely distributed in all parts of Indonesia.
Interestingly, even some forest trees, such as Eucalyptus and Dipterocarpaceae
, usually considered to be typically ectomycorrhizal, have been recently found to have AM colonization [20,49,50].
