Names that other countries have for this feature:
An island 0.5 mi long, lying 1.5 mi SW of Belding Island at the SW extremity of the Biscoe Islands. The island is one of the largest of many small islets and rocks that fringe the northern side of Matha Strait. The vicinity was charted by the FrAE (1908-10) under Jean B. Charcot, who applied the name "Pointe Decazes" to the south end of an island in this approximate position. The original application has been altered in recent years, and the name Decazes is now established in usage for the entire island described.
