This is another feature in this volcanic area, but it has no name and is not included in GVP’s list of subfeatures.  Also, getting accurate dates of these lavas has been a challenge because they are too young and basaltic for potassium-argon dating, and they are too lacking in burnt organic material for radiocarbon dating.

Also, since tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the U.S., I am showing my thanks to the Search Party by giving an extra point to everybody who makes a guess in this challenge.
