Atriceps Island is the southernmost of the Robertson Islands, lying 5.6 kilometres (3 nmi) south of the south-east end of Coronation Island in the South Orkney Islands of Antarctica. The island has been identified as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International because it supports a breeding colony of imperial shags (Phalacrocorax atriceps), after which the island was named in 1948–49 by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey, with 524 pairs recorded in 1988.
