Comment
Comments: 
Schebeck (2001:94) says that Nhunydjulpi (N126) is the name of a Wagilak N106 group, affiliated with Ritharrngu N104. Curpatrick describes Nunydjirrpi (N126) as a ?andi N90 speaking clan, which was "gagu clan or märipulu ('mother's mother group' in Kriol and Wägilak languages respectively) to the Young Wägilak Group". Nunydjirrpi are affiliated with the Dhuwa moiety and hold clan estates "north of the upper Rose River and south of ?ilipidji" (2013:54). Tindale (1974) says that Nundjulpi (N126) is an alternative name of Wagilag N106. For Yolngu languages and groups, see Yolngu Matha N230.
