Comment
Comments: 
According to Watkins and Hamilton (in Curr, 1886, Vol. 3, p. 222) and Tindale (1974), Jandai is the language spoken by Goenpul people. O'Grady et al. (1966) treat Koenpel as an alternative name of Djendewal while Oates (1975:214) treats Goinbal as an alternative name for Djendewal, located on the southern part of Stradbroke Island (1975:214) . Given this, Djendewal and Goinbal are listed under Jandai here, but see also Guyambal D35. Other sources indicate that the Moreton Bay region and the people from that area are known as Quandamooka. This is a grouping that consists of Jagara E23 and Koopenul in the Cleveland area; Nunukal E21 and Goenpul (E19) peoples from Stradbroke Island; and Ngugi E26 from Moreton Island.
