It's been over a month since the last MVP, so I thought it might be time to throw out another. Last time, Chris Reykjavik got the right answer - Kaula Island in Hawai`i (top left), a remnant of a tuff cone on a shield volcano - after what might be a record number of guesses by the Eruptions crew. Hopefully the new one will give you similar fits.

The standings:

  • Boris Behncke - 7

  • Don Crain - 5

  • The Bobs - 4

  • Chris Reykjavik - 3

  • gijs - 2

  • Doug C. - 2

  • volcanista - 1

  • Lockwood - 1

  • Robert Somerville - 1

  • Elizabeth - 1

  • Ralph - 1

  • Anne - 1

  • Cam - 1

  • gg - 1

  • Damon Hynes - 1

  • Marco - 1

  • Diane - 1

  • Stephen - 1

  • MK, Alberta - 1

  • Kultsi - 1

  • Henrik - 1

  • Zane - 1

  • Rodger Wilson - 1

  • Robin Campion - 1

  • Jan Nygard - 1

  • Cole Kingsbury - 1

  • Manuela - 1

  • Phillip Mulholland - 1

  • Eva Hedstrom - 0.5

UPDATE: Robert Somerville got #41 on the very first guess (see comments), so I'm adding a second image ... try your luck on this one:

SOLVED! Here is the new MVP. Good luck - and to make it more difficult, I need an identification and a date of eruption! SOLVED!
