Schebeck speculates that Wurrulul (N132) is a 'ceremonial name (?)' of the Rirradjingu N140; wurrulul means 'blow fly' (2001:96).
Oates says it is a 'Riraidjangu-speaking group now extinct' (1975:315, 387).
The Yolngu Matha Dictionary records 'wurulul ~ wurrulul : fly, bush fly'. For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
