The late-Quaternary Leutongey Icelandic-type basaltic shield volcano is located at the south end of a NE-SW-trending graben about 20 km west of the crest of the central Sredinny Range. A chain of youthful cinder cones along the same trend cuts across the summit of the 1333-m-high shield volcano, and another larger cinder cone is located on the south flank. The small late-Quaternary basaltic stratovolcano Medveshiy is located immediately to the SE of Leutongey. Early geologic studies in the Sredinny Range (Ogorodov et al., 1972) identified numerous Holocene eruptive centers based primarily on morphological criteria. However, later work has suggested that Sredinny Range volcanoes are less mantled by Holocene tephras than eastern Kamchatka volcanoes and therefore appear more youthful, so that Holocene eruptions are uncertain for many of these Sredinny Range eruptive vents.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Leutongey. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Leutongey 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.

|The small volcano with the circular crater at the center of this NASA Space Shuttle Mission image is Leutongey. Below it and to the right (SE) is the Pleistocene basaltic stratovolcano Medveshiy. The 1333-m-high Leutongey is a small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
