FOOTNOTES: 

[48] The Darkinung have Bya for Muri (J.R.S.N.S.W. XXXI, 170).

[49] Some of the Wiradjeri have W[=o]mbee for Kumbo (Gribble, 113).

[50] Male descent.

[51] Some of the names given by Howitt and Mathews seem to be identical with those of the Kiabara, but there is a difficulty about the arrangement, for Koorpal-Keeara=Yungnuru=Bunya-Jarbain; but Banniar, which seems to be the same as Bunya, falls in the other moiety.

[52] Curr, II, 478.

[53] Marinungo seems to be the same as Maringo but is not equivalent.
