on S side of Mikkelsen Bay, Fallières Coast, between Keyhole Island and Clarke Glacier, was surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in November 1948 and named Query Islet because of the difficulty of deciding from a distance whether the feature was in fact separated from the coast (APC, 1955, p.17; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955). Query Island (APC, 1959a, p.10; BA chart 3571, 14.vii.1961). The feature has since become joined to the coast through glacier advance (BAS 250P sheet SR 19-20/2, 1-DOS 1978).
