Muban area with several exclaves

While looking for the list of administrative villages (Muban) on the website of the TAO Na Roek (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลนาเริก), Amphoe Phanat Nikhom, Chonburi province, I instead found the maps of the Muban. At first look nothing special, but once I checked the map of Mu 12 (Ban Ko Klang) a strange thing showed. This Muban consists of 5 areas not connected with each other, or if one considers the largest of these areas as the main one this Muban has four exclaves.

To better show the issue I have worked some time with Inkscape and created a vector map of the Muban in this subdistrict. Since I haven't found the Muban names in a table, I confirmed the names from the DOPA Excel sheet with those names on the map.

12บ้านเกาะกลางBan Ko Klang
13บ้านหนองโมกข์Ban Nong Mok
14บ้านหนองโคลนBan Nong Khlon
15บ้านหนองแกBan Nong Kae
1 The DOPA table has Mu 7 named Ban Noen Kha (บ้านเนินค้า) instead.
