Description (see definition): An ice-covered island of irregular shape, 0.25 mile long, between Early Islands and Cosgrove Ice Shelf in the extreme southeast part of Ferrero Bay, Eights Coast. The occurrence of open water around the feature, clearly shown in U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) aerial photographs and satellite images of the 1966-2000 period, has drawn attention due to the island position behind the fast ice of Ferrero Bay. Named descriptively by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) (2009) because the shape of the island is reminiscent of a molar.
