The Mabda complex, also called Dubbi Alto, is composed of rhyolitic lava domes (Wiart and Oppenheimer, 2005). The north flank has been partially covered by lava flows from Dubbi volcano, but it's relationship to that edifice is unknown. Although the age is also unknown, it's location between two Holocene volcanoes makes a Pleistocene age likely. In addition, there are fresher-looking cones and lava flows 9-12 km down the SSE flank (also possibly related to Dubbi) and a 32 km2 lava field 20 km SE (also possibly associated with Nabro).
