The Cerro Nevado Volcanic Field is located north of Payun Matru and west of Llancanelo volcanic field. The exact bounds vary depending on the researcher, with the area between the Cerro Nevado stratovolcano and Payun Matru being considered part of Payun Matru, Cerro Nevado, or the Llancanelo volcanic fields, or simply generically within the Payenia Volcanic Province. K-Ar ages reported by Ramos and Folguera (2011) are around 1.32 Ma.
