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