Aguilera volcano, located west of Lake Argentina and NE of Peel Fjiord, is one of a chain of poorly known volcanoes in the southernmost Chilean Andes. Geochemical evidence indicated that the dacitic Aguilera volcano was the source of a major late-Holocene Patagonian tephra layer that was erupted less than about 3600 years ago.

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.
