Comment
Language comment
Black (2007 p.c.) says that the following three names may refer to the same dialect: Guandhar or Kwandhar (the name used by the Kurtjar G33), Gug-Nar G49 (the name used by speakers of languages such as Koko-Bera Y85) and Kuuk-Nhang G50, which is the name used by the speakers of this dialect). Breen (2006 p.c.), on the other hand, suspects that these are names of closely related dialects. Previously conflated under G29, each is now treated distinctly in this database and the Thesaurus on the basis of there being distinct language data for each. However, given the varying uses of these names, documentation for G49 and G50 may also be relevant.

Location information
... on the Staaten River, in the south-western part of the Cape York Peninsula. Galbraith Station and northern bank of the lower Staaten River inland to Old Koolatah, north to Inkerman and middle Nassau River (Tindale 1974) West bank of Norman River, close to its mouth (Oates 1975:296) Guandhar - Oates’ information (West bank of Norman River, close to its mouth (Oates 1975:296) is grossly wrong: I’d put it roughly in the ‘Inkerman Station area, between and a bit beyond the Nassau and Staaten Rivers’, and probably extending to the coast (Black 2007 p.c.)
