parasitic cones / lava tunnels
Explanation:
parasitic cone: a small cone occurring on the flanks of a large volcano.

lava tunnel: an open-ended tube or passage within a lava-flow caused when the lava surface cools sufficiently to form a crust, thereby creating a roof below which the more mobile lava may drain away to leave a lava-enclosed tunnel.
