Comment
Comments: 
Only reported in Oates (175:258), with Sommer as her source. However, Mbarmburmu does not seem to be in any of Sommer's field work reports, nor does it appear in any catalogue record in the AIATSIS collection. Mbarmburmu may well be a variant or mishearing of the more commonly reported Mbambylmu Y62, though Oates has this as a variant of 'Gambilmugu' Y62, distinct from Mbarmburmu. Given the lack of evidence, Mbarmburmu is listed as Unconfirmed.
