Mulao (木佬), a Kra language, is not to be confused with a Kam-Sui language of the same name (仫佬) which is alternatively called Mulam. Mulao is closely related to Gelao and is spoken in Longli (龙里), Majiang (麻江), Guizhou, China. However, it is not documented on Ethnologue (see http://lingweb.eva.mpg.de/numeral/Mulao.htm for more information).
