Comment
Comments: 

Breen (1971) says the name Kulumali (L37) was unknown to his informants, who suggested that it might really be Kulumani, the name of a corroboree.

The only material which refers to Kulumali is Birdsell (1973), which contains no linguistic information. Based on the information available, Gulumali is unlikely to be a language name.
