The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Bora-Bericcio. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Bora-Bericcio page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

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.

Mount Bericcio, a rhyolitic pumice cone along the Wonji Fault Belt in Ethiopia, is part of the Bora-Bericcio volcanic complex. Produced by the accumulation of rhyolitic pumice around its vent, Bericcio is capped by a small summit crater. Erosion of the unconsolidated pumice has produced parasol-like ribbing on the flanks of the cone. Its twin volcano, Bora, has a 1.5-km-wide summit crater. Small silicic pyroclastic cones are found on the east flanks of both Bora and Bericcio. Vigorous fumarolic activity continues.
