    Jules Verne gives the coordinates refered to the meridian of Paris 2? 20' east of Greenwitch.
    Reef Maria Theresa was reported by Cpt Tabor by 37?S, 151? 13' W (of Greenwitch) in 1843.
    Reef Ernest‑Legouv? is reported by the unknown Cpt of the French vesel 
    "Ernest Legouv?", by 35? 12' S, 150? 40 W (of Greenwitch) in 1902.
    These reefs were reported and charted but never confirmed.
    See chart 5356 of the Service Hydrografique et Oc?anographique de la Marine 
    (the French Navy hydrografic office).
