Comment
Comments: 

Schebeck says that Wulkara (N93) is a 'dialect form of the name Wobulgarra' N88 (2001:96); Bowern describes Wulkara as another name for Wubulkara N88 (Bowern, 2007 p.c.).

Warner (1937:46) lists Wulkara (N93) language; Capell lists Wolgara as a dialect of Wulamba (1963); Oates and Oates (1970) treat 'Wolgara' (N93) and 'Obulgara' N88 as distinct identities. Tindale lists 'Wulkara' and 'Wolgara' (N93) as alternate forms for 'Wobulkara' N88 (1974:225).

See and use Wubulkarra N88. For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
