Comment
Comments: 

Dhäpuyngu (N116.E) is a Yolngu clan affiliated with Dhuwal N198 language and Dhuwa moiety; Schebeck indicates it has not been recorded, and that Dhäpuyngu (N116.E) people are said to have emigrated to Groote Eylandt some time ago (2001:16, 17). Dhäpuyngu is also called bottom Dhurili N122 which comprises Marrangu N116.Q, Marrakulu N142 and Dhäpuyngu (Schebeck 2001:89). See also Wurunggugu N133; different from Dhäpuyngu N116.D. For Yolngu language groups see Yolngu Matha N230.
