Thai goodies wrapped in banana leaf

While in Thailand I sampled a variety of banana leaf-wrapped dumpling like things. I would like to try my hand at making them at home, but I'm at a loss to find info on some of these via google. I can find the sticky rice and banana ones, and some for pork or chicken versions. But I'm hoping to prepare the rice and black bean one that I had for some vegetarian friends. It might help if I knew the name of this one. Anyone know it?

Actually, I'd gratefully take any pointers towards an online resource that deals with Thai banana leaf packages in any comprehensive or systematic way. I'd like to know what the range of possibilities are in Thailand, so as to spark my own experimentation.
