Musuan volcano (also known as Calayo volcano) is an isolated lava dome near the Pulangi River at the western base of Mt Tangkulan (1678 m) in Bukidnon Province in central Mindanao, Philippines.

Background:

The low cone is grass-covered and andesitic-to-dacitic in composition.
Musuan last erupted in Dec 1886, as a Jesuit priest reported who visited the volcano 4 years later in 1891, at which time there was still strong fumarolic activity, which prevented closer examination. The eruption was probably phreatic in nature, and was reported to have "burned everything around it".

1976 seismic swarm
A strong earthquake swarm occurred near Musuan volcano in 1976.
