Makaturing volcano rises above the shore of Illana Bay at the west end of a chain of volcanoes in central Mindanao. Eruptions at one time attributed to Makaturing were ascribed to neighboring Ragang volcano to the east by the Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World (Neumann van Padang, 1953), but PHIVOLCS (2004) listed eruptions for Makaturing, several of which are in the same year as those from Ragang volcano. A dense cover of vegetation that blankets Makaturing suggests long quiescence, but solfataric activity continues.

Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

|Makaturing volcano (left of center) rises NE of Illana Bay (lower left) and south of Lake Lanao (upper left) at the west end of a chain of volcanoes in central Mindanao. Several prominent pyroclastic cones are visible on its flanks. Eruptions from this volcanic chain (including Latukan volcano, right-center) have variously been attributed to Makaturing and the historically active Ragang volcano (far right-center).

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.
