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.

Five Pleistocene-to-Holocene volcanic centers occupy Babuyan de Claro Island north of Luzon. The largest edifice is Mt. Pangasun (Babuyan Claro), an active stratovolcano with two summit craters 300 and 400 m in diameter. The symmetrical basaltic andesite cinder cone of Smith Volcano (Mount Babuyan), located 4 km to the NW of Babuyan Claro, rises to 688 m and is the youngest volcano on the island. Both Babuyan Claro and Smith volcanoes have apparently been active in historical time, although the identity of the erupting volcano is not always certain. Askedna Hot Spring is located at the southern base of Babuyan Claro.
