The Potrillo volcanic field in southern New Mexico along the western margin of the Rio Grande Rift contains more than 150 cinder cones and five maars, including the Kilbourne Hole, and a small shield volcano. The southernmost maar, Potrillo maar, straddles the US-Mexico border. The Potrillo field was active from 2.65 to 0.8 million years ago (Hoffer, in Wood and Kienle 1990).
