The Delta Lávico flow forms a peninsula on the SE flank of Volcán Bárcena at the southern end of San Benedicto Island. The tuff cone and lava flow formed during the 1952-53 eruption. The flat-topped cone to the right is Cráter Herrera, a lava dome with crater. Another lava dome, Roca Challenger, forms the northern tip of the island beyond Cráter Herrera.
