Abstract: Lepuldalinggul is the Ngarrinderi name for a hill in the southern Fleurieu range. In the 1930s Ngarrinderi informants Milerum and Karlowan spoke of a traditional pair of hills. This second hill was called Lepuldalinggul (and probably also Lepuldawalangg) by Karlowan, who identified it as Mt Robinson. Milerum probably did not name it, but is said by Tindale to have located it somewhere south of Mt Hayfield; however this is doubtful. Lepuldalinggul was associated with the being Lepuldali, or (in Milerum) Lepidawi. He was a ‘ring tail mouse’ (Milerum) or ‘flying opossum’ (Karlowan): possibly the Feathertail Glider.
