Largest of the Rosenthal Islands lying off the W coast of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. First roughly charted and named "Pointe de Gerlache" by the FrAE, 1903-05, under Charcot, for Lt. Adrien de Gerlache. As a result of FIDS surveys in 1956-58, this island is considered to be the feature named by Charcot; there is no prominent point in this vicinity which would be visible from seaward.
