Comment
Comments: 
Schebeck (2001:93) says that Malarrbartjaray N98 is a Ritharr?u N104 speaking Madarrpa N111 clan, which was originally a Dhuwala N199 speaking clan. Oates (1975:317) similarly lists Malarbardjuradj under Ritharrngu N104 and as a probable Mala name. In this database, Malarbardjuradj is classified in the Ritharrngu sub-group rather than Dhuwala sub-group because of the language now spoken by clan members.
