Yanteles is a little-studied stratovolcanoin southern Chile. It has 5 glacier-capped peaks. It was reported to have erupted in 1835 one day after a magnitude 8.1 earthquake 800 km away, but the eruption is not confirmed.

Background:

from Smithsonian / GVP Yanteles volcano information:
Little-known Yanteles volcano in southern Chile is composed of five glacier-capped peaks along an 8-km-long NE-trending ridge. Several Holocene tephra layers have been documented from Yanteles volcano. Historical activity from this 2042-m-high, andesitic volcanic complex is uncertain. Although there were reports of an eruption from Yanteles at the time of the February 20, 1835 Chile earthquake, and Sapper (1917) reported that previously unseen black areas were seen near the crater after the 1835 earthquake, the nature of this activity is not clear.
