(see Lewis 2009)

Yarsun [yrs], a Sarmi coast Oceanic language, was not found on survey 2005 (according to E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24/E25/E26/E27 itself) and its presumed existence seems to stem from the Index of Irian Jaya languages ( Peter J. Silzer and Heljä Heikkinen-Clouse 1991 ). The first mention of it is as an island (not singled out as a separate language) between Anus and Podena is by van der Leeden, Alexander Cornelis 1954 who considers Anus [auq], Podena [pdn] and Yarsun [yrs] one and the same language. Thus the Yarsun [yrs] entry is either the same as Anus [auq] or Podena [pdn] or unattested. See also: Korur [auq], Podena [pdn].
