Names that other countries have for this feature:
Cape at the N side of the entrance to Barilari Bay, on the W coast of Graham Land. The cape was discovered and named "Cap Loqui" by the FrAE, 1903-05, under Charcot. At the same time Charcot named the S entrance point to the bay "Cap Garcia," after Rear Admiral Garcia, Argentine Navy. The maps of Charcot's FrAE, 1908-10, showed "Cap Garcia" as the N cape of Barilari Bay and the name has since become established for this feature. Charcot did not use the name "Cap Loqui" on the maps of his second expedition but, for the sake of historical continuity, the name Loqui Point (q.v.) has been accepted for the S entrance point.
