Reclus volcano, the source of several Holocene Patagonian tephra layers, was recognized to be an independent volcanic edifice only in 1987. The 1000-m-high volcano consists of a large dacitic pyroclastic cone with a crater about 1 km in diameter. As many as a half dozen tephra layers overlie a peat layer dated at 3780 years before present. The volcano is being actively eroded by the Amalia Glacier, which drains off the Patagonian Icecap. Later work revealed evidence for historical eruptions in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

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 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.
