Iapama [iap] is listed in E16/E17/E18/E19 as an unclassified language in the Pará and Amapá border region of Brazil. It is located on the map but commented as existence uncertain&#39;&#39;. The location on the map, near the Jari river between Apalai <a href="">[apy]</a> and Wayampi <a href="">[oym]</a>, can only match one known uncontacted group, i.e., number XXXIII of <a class="Source" href="" title="Pierre Grenand and Françoise Grenand 1994">Pierre Grenand and Françoise Grenand 1994</a>: 111 ,Rio Ipitinga'' of Vincent Brackelaire and Gilberto Azanha 2006: 322 as known as grupo arredio do alto Ipitinga&#39;&#39; of ( <a class="Source" href="" title="Dominique Gallois and Carlos Alberto Ricardo 1983">Dominique Gallois and Carlos Alberto Ricardo 1983</a>: 102 ) oreine sehr isolierte Tupi-Gruppe an einem rechten Nebenflusse des Maecurú: die aussterbenden Ápama'' ( Protasio Frikel 1957: 515 , 542). The little available evidence points to this group being an offshoot Wayampi [oym] group, though not impossibly an Apalai [apy] group. In either case, no separate language can be asserted, so the entry is spurious.
