Comment
Comments: 

Oates and Oates (1970:209) say that this is a group of tribes including Bujindji Y87, Njunggal Y90 and Waldja Y98, while Roth (1898) says that 'Wool-boorjoor-boor natives' (Y148) speak a language called 'Ko-ko-min-ni' Y94.

Based on the available information, Wulbudjibur is unlikely to be a language name.
