A hypothetical Wutana language was mentioned in early editions of the Ethnologue as spoken in Nigeria, but has now been removed. The inclusion of Wutana in the Ethnologue was based on two sentences in a 1922 article by Olive Temple:
- There are 1,075 Wutana in Bauchi Emirate. (p. 367)
- 105. Wutana, population 1,075 in Bauchi Emirate. (p. 431).
- Temple, Olive. 1922. Notes on the Tribes, Provinces, Emirates and States of the Northern Provinces of Nigeria. Argus Printing and Publishing Co. Cape Town. pp. 367, 431.
