Acarospora Peak

Acarospora Peak

Acarospora Peak is a peak 1 mile (1.6 km) northeast of, and only slightly below the elevation of Mount Czegka, located at the southwest end of Watson Escarpment. Mapped by United States Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1960-64. Named by New Zealand Antarctic Place-Names Committee (NZ-APC) on suggestion of New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE) Scott Glacier Party, 1969-70, because the lichen Acarospora emergens Dodge was found on the peak.
