|Location||On both banks of the Daly River inland from the Pongaponga tribal boundary at about 20 miles (30 km.) upstream from its mouth; their inland boundary is near Daly River Crossing, about 50 miles (80 km.) from the mouth; 5 on NW map. The Komorrkir, regarded by Basedow (1907) as an eastern horde, is now given as a separate tribe usually known as the Kamor. In the older literature the name of this tribe is Mulukmuluk, with several variations in spelling. Both Berndt (1965) and Stanner (1970 MS) agree that the proper name is as above, the term Mulukmuluk is one applied by others.|
