The broad Ilimuda volcano, located 6.5 km north of Lewotobi Lakilaki volcano opposite Konga bay in eastern Flores Island, contains a 1-km-wide, 450-m-deep crescentic crater open to the SE. Satellitic cones, including the Ilibotong lava dome, are located on the lower SE and NE flanks. No historical eruptions are known from Gunung Ilimuda. A fumarole is located inside the NE crater rim.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Ilimuda. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Ilimuda 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.

Ilimuda volcano, rising above Sukutukang village on its WSW flank, is a low, 1100-m-high stratovolcano with a large crater breached to the SE. The volcano overlooks Konga bay on the east. No historical eruptions are known from Ilimuda, although an active fumarole is located inside the NE crater rim.

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.
