van Bemmelen R W, 1937. The volcano-tectonic structure of the residency of Malang (eastern Java). Ing Ned-Indie, 4: 159-172.

A group of nine ash cones, maars, and volcanic plugs of subrecent-to-recent (Holocene) age are found on the Malang Plain, SE and NE of the city of Malang (van Bemmelen, 1937). Some of these may be partly parasitic to Tengger Caldera, although others have no clear connection to any specific eruption center and are situated on a distinct N-S zone of tectonic weakness.
