The Media Luna scoria cone at the NW side of La Yeguada volcanic complex is one of its youngest features. A lava flow that erupted from the western flank reached about 3 km to the west. A radiocarbon date of 360 +/- 90 years before present (BP) was obtained from lake sediment formed when the lava flow blocked a local drainage.
