Volcán Domuyo is a 4702-m-high Argentinian stratovolcano of late-Pleistocene or possibly Holocene age (Moreno 1985, pers. comm.). At least 14 dacitic lava domes and other eruptive centers were constructed within a broad 15-km-wide caldera, and at least another 5 lie outside the caldera. The largest of the latter is Volcán Chanque-Mallín on the ESE flank. It is truncated by a 4-km-wide caldera and contains a resurgent dome.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Domuyo. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Domuyo 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 snow-covered area at the upper left in this NASA International Space Station image (with north to the lower right) is the Volcán Domuyo volcanic complex. This 4709-m-high Argentinian volcano contains at least 14 dacitic lava domes and other eruptive centers within a 16-km-wide caldera, and at least another 5 lie outside the caldera. Elongated Laguna Valvarco at the lower right lies along the western margin of the Pleistocene Valvarco caldera.

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.
