Misspelled?[edit]

So which is misspelled here? The title or the word in the single sentence? I presume the title is correct, but I will leave it to someone more knowledgeable to say. Unschool 03:56, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

PseudocraterRootless cone – Hi, I'd like to suggest to move/rename this article from Pseudocrater to Rootless cone. The reason for this is that in recent years, the term pseudocrater has been largely replaced by the term rootless cone in scientific literature. The reason for this is that the cones are real features and hence the prefix pseudo is misleading (see page 580).

What do you think? Best regards. Chmee2 (talk) 07:36, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, if I am not wrong, the term is not size-dependent. To call them rootless cones, the important is mechanism of their formation - interaction of lava with water. Best regards --Chmee2 (talk) 17:03, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support pseudocraters are craters caused by explosions, so are still "craters" in a general non-volcanic sense. -- 65.94.169.222 (talk) 04:09, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support "Rootless cone" is a more accurate name. — Gorthian (talk) 20:43, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
