Reclus is a volcano located in Southern Patagonia Ice Field, Chile. It has a crater with a diameter around 1 km and is being shaped by glacial erosion caused by Amalia Glacier. The volcano had been mistaken for Cerro Mano del Diablo (Devil's Hand Mountain) until 1987, when it was determined its true location.[1] The volcano is a dacitic cone and has a 1 km wide crater. It is eroded by the Amalia glacier and its last eruptive activity was 1908.[2]
