Group of small islands and rocks 2 mi in extent, lying 1 mi SW of Avian Island, close off the S extremity of Adelaide Island. Discovered by the FrAE, 1908-10, under Charcot, and named by him for one of the Norwegian directors of the Magellan Whaling Co. at Punta Arenas. Charcot applied the name to the scattered rocks and islands between Cape Adriasola and Cape Alexandra. The name was restricted to the group described by the UK-APC following definitive mapping by the BAS in 1961 and the British Royal Navy Hydrographic Survey in 1963.
