The online Yolngu Matha Dictionary lists mu?gurrpi (N208) as a dialect name affiliated with Djinang N94.1; Munggurrpi is a name that some Marrangu N116.Q people (a Djinang N94.1 clan) call their own dialect (Waters, 1989:249); Mungurrpi is an alternate name for a Djinang speaking group (Keen, 1995:508). Oates lists Munggurrpi under Djinang, and describes them as Yirritja moiety (1975:322). For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
