Eyjafjallajokull is not accepted, Eldfell should be Heimaey or Vestmanneyjar and Krakatau should be accepted for Krakatoa, please.

Heimaey is an island, which incidentally has two volcanoes on it. Vestmannaeyjar is an archipelago which contains numerous volcanoes.. Neither refers specifically enough to Eldfell itself.
