The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Latukan. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Latukan 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.

Makaturing volcano (left of center) rises NE of Illana Bay (lower left) and south of Lake Lanao (upper left) at the west end of a chain of volcanoes in central Mindanao. Several prominent pyroclastic cones are visible on its flanks. Eruptions from this volcanic chain (including Latukan volcano, right-center) have variously been attributed to Makaturing and the historically active Ragang volcano (far right-center).

Latukan is flanked on the west by Makaturing volcano (left-center) and closely on the east by the historically active Ragang volcano.
