Names that other countries have for this feature:
on W side of Lallemand Fjord, Loubet Coast, was photographed from the air by FIDASE and surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Detaille Island", 1956-57; so named because the island "hoodwinked" successive visitors, for it escaped the notice of BGLE on a flight over the area in February 1936, its geology was later misinterpreted by FIDS, and the survey station beside it was misidentified in 1957 (APC, 1959a, p. 7; BA chart 3571, 14.vii.1961).
