Dirim - language or dialect?

Regarding: 
Dialects
ISO 639-3: 
ccg

Dirim is listed twice in the Ethnologue: as a dialect of Samba Daka and also as a language in its own right (dir). I realize that you may not have sufficient data at hand to confidently choose a category. If however, this hybrid categorization has been there for a while, you may be in a position now to solve this dichotomy. So, this post is just to make you aware of this dilemma.

Editorial Action

We will remove Dirim as a dialect name of Samba Daka [ccg] in Nigeria for the next edition of the Ethnologue.
