Island lying NW of Apendice Island in Hughes Bay, off the W coast of Graham Land. First seen by the BelgAE under Gerlache in 1898 and described as an island with two summits "like the ears of an ass." The name, given by the UK-APC in 1960, derives from this description; Midas, King of Phrygia, was represented in Greek satyric drama with the ears of an ass.
