Comment
Comments: 

Following Hercus, Wafer and Lissarrague divide the Darling River language into two groups: Southern Darling River includes Southern Paakantyi D61, Wilyaali (~Wilyakali) D16, Thaangkali (~Thangkakali) D14, Pulaali (Pulakali) D11, Wanyuparlku (~Wanyiwalku) D21, Pantyikali D17, Marrawarra D6, Parrintyi D48. Northern Darling River or Paakantyi D12, Paaruntyi D47,  Kurnu D25, Nhaawuparlku (Nhaawarlku) D19 and Milpulo D59 (2008: 263-267). 

Tindale (1974) lists Bulali (D11) as an alternative name for both Wiljakali D13 and Maljangapa L8.

Note that Hercus's Paakantyi grammar and dictionary is mainly on Southern Paakantyi D61.
