Comment
Comments: 
Schebeck describes Dholpuy?u (N116.D) as the name of the 'top' Gumatj N141 (group?), but also questions if it is a Warramiri N131 group (2001:89). Bates says Dolpuyngu or Dalbingu (N116.D) is the name of a mala which used to be located at Matamata (1975:388). Different from Dhäpuyngu N116.E. For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
