Thirty small volcanic centers of late-Pleistocene to Holocene age are located in SE Papua New Guinea on the Managlase Plateau, south of the Hydrographers Range and SW of the Dyke Ackland Bay. The fault-bounded plateau forms a triangular-shaped area dotted with trachybasaltic lava cones and flows, scoria mounds, cinder cones, and explosion vents of the Uoivi Volcanics and capped on its eastern side by rhyodacitic ash cones, lava domes, and ashflow deposits of the Manna Volcanics . The date of the most recent eruption on the Managlase Plateau is not known, but the trachybasaltic Kururui cinder cone and a nearby explosion crater were active within memory of nearby villagers (Ruxton, 1966).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Managlase Plateau. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Managlase Plateau page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
