Ethnologue (18th edition) lists "Bikaru" [bic] as a separate language, despite also listing it as a dialect of Bisorio. The entry for Bikaru follows Laycock's (1973) tentative assignment of the language to the Sepik family, but Conrad and Lewis (1988) argue that Bikaru is a dialect of Bisorio (Trans-New Guinea family).
