|Location||Mitta Mitta and Keiwa rivers; at Tallangatta, and along the Murray valley from Jigellic and Tintaldra to Albury. Regarded by Howitt (1904) as a horde of the Jaitmathang; if hordal status is correct, the Djilamatang are probably to be regarded as third one. Massola (1962) also considered this and the Jaitmathang to be one tribe, but there are grounds for belief they were separate. One unidentified name, Dhooroomba, listed by Mathews (1898:67) may belong here.|
