The Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation web site lists Mileura (A114) among 'some of' the Wajarri (A39) dialects, the others being Birdungu A40, Nharnu A115, Nhugarn A71, Byro A113 and Ngunuru A112. Marmion (1996:6-7) does not include Mileura Wajarri in his description of Wajarri (A39) dialects. Marmion (2015 p.c.) notes that in more recent times Wajarri varieties have been referred to by station names in the area, such as Byro station and Mileura station, leading to some names existing in parallel with older names. He says that Mileura Wajarri is probably equivalent to Ngunuru A112. Given that this is likely to be equivalent to Ngoonooru A112, and in the absence of any items in the AIATSIS collection referring to it, Mileura Wajarri is not included as a distinct language heading in the Thesaurus.
