H. B. Baker, 1924:104-105, pl. 20.
Baker (1924:24) station A2C. "Baranca Alto and Isla (F and G; L69° 57.77', 12° 28.50' and 69° 57.45', 12° 28.28', respectively).23 The Isla is a rather high, limestone mesa (72.5 meters), which is almost completely surrounded by canyon-like roois. Baranca Alto (about 50 meters) is the crest at the inner edge of the coral formation, along Rooi Taki (K). Both of these localities have patches of brush and larger trees, but are considerably more barren than the southern substations."
