Description (see definition): Three small islands and several rocks lying close together just S of Ongul Island in the Flatvaer Islands. The three main islands were mapped as one by Norwegian cartographers, working from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition of 1936-37, and named Teoya (the tea island). The Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE), 1957-62, determined the feature to be a cluster of islands but the name has been retained for the group.
