I saw that one on the NEIC website.

largest of the quake series was approximately N. of Sabancaya.

This bit came in handy as the NEIC maps do not name nearby volcanoes & no volcanism was reported by that site.

Looks like Sabancaya is joining the list of active volcanoes on the Smithsonian list. Last volcanism with a precursor quake series identified by the NEIC was Havre seamount (Kermadec arc), and previously... Nabro (Afar hotspot).
