Comment
Comments: 

Black and Walsh (1989) say Gudang and 'Andooyomo' (or 'Ndoodomo') Y192 are often grouped under the name Djagaraga Y6, and these are not Uradhi dialects. They list Gudang under Northern Pama.

Dixon (2007 p.c.) groups Gudang and Djagara Y6 together on the basis of their locations.

There is a word list by Jardine in Curr (1886).
