I have absolutely no known ancestry even an inkling of it from Papua New Guinea, but I get a trace of it with several calculators..... that and S. Asian (Bengali). Maybe an ancient bring back from Marco Polo's travels or something....

I wonder how the Hòabìnhian hunter gatherers of Southeast Asia fit into this picture: https://www.sciencealert.com/8-000-year-old-remains-surprising-story-ancestry-southeast-asia-ho-abi-nhian-agriculture-migration-china

I wonder how true that is.Papuans and Aboriginals both appear to cluster genetically with East Eurasians,and Australoids historically have intermixed with Southeast Asians alot more than South Asians historically.This explains the existence of Oceania itself and whole populations like Polynesians,Micronesians,and Wallaceans.I would barely even count South Indians and Sri Lankans as actually Australoid admixed unlike the former groups.
