Alpher describes them in regional blocs, with Ogh-Awarrangg in the southwestern bloc at the junction of the Palmer and Mitchell Rivers. Other members of this group include Awu Alaya (Kuku Thaypan) Y84; Aghu Tharrnggala Y65; Awu Arungu / Awu Alwang / Agu Aloja Y219; Ogh Alungul Y199; Kuku Mini Y94; Ogh Angkula 197; Ikarranggal Y198; Takalak Y125; Ongunyjan Y206; Kokiny Y188; Athima Y237 (2016:41-42).
