ice-covered col between Cape Longing (q.v.) and Trinity Peninsula and Nordenskjöld Coast, was called Longing Col in association with the cape (Anderson, 1957, p.141). An Argentine refuge hut was established, 15 October 1960, on the SW side of the gap in an ice-free area long used as a depot site, and called "Florentino Ameghino" after Florentino Ameghino (1854-1911), Argentine geologist and anthropologist; Director, Museum of Natural History, Buenos Aires, 1902-11.
