This group of six andesitic-dacitic cinder cones of lower to middle Pleistocene age was unnamed by IAVCEI (1973). Neill et al. (2013) sampled the Sepasar, Eznasar, and Kaputkogh cones in the "Cone Series" of the Akhuryan Valley. U-Pb dating of volcanic ash from a nearby archeological site gave an age of 1.8 Ma (Presnyakov et al., 2012).
