near head of Hackapike Bay, Parker Peninsula, Anvers Island, was roughly charted by BGLE in January 1936 and so named from its position in the bay (Rymill, 1938b; USHO chart 6650, 1947; APC, 1959a, p.7; BA chart 3213, 12.viii.1960). Isla Cabeza [translation of English name] (Chile. DNH chart 510, 1947). Head Islet (BA chart 3213, 6.x.1950; APC, 1955, p.11). Islote Head (Chile. DNH chart 510, 1955; IHA, 1974, p.150). Air photographs by FIDASE in 1956 show the island half-connected to Anvers Island through encroachment of glacier ice from the S, and air photographs by USN in 1969 show it completely connected. The island does not appear on BAS 250 sheet SQ 19-20/4, 1-DOS 1974.
