Dozens more are missing, the country's disaster agency says.
Only 13 of the dead have been identified so far, Mirna Zeledon, a spokeswoman for Guatemala's National Institute of Forensic Sciences told Reuters.
Villages on the slopes of Fuego volcano were buried in volcanic ash, mud and rocks as the volcano erupted for 16 and a half hours on Sunday.
Pyroclastic flows, which are fast-moving mixtures of very hot gas and volcanic matter, rushed down the mountainside and engulfed villages.

President Jimmy Morales has declared three days of national mourning.
A further pyroclastic flow on Monday sparked alarm.
Guatemala's coast has also been hit by an earthquake though there are no reports of damage so far. Fuego, about 40km (25 miles) south-west of the capital Guatemala City, spewed rock, gas and ash into the sky.
Fast-moving flows hit villages, killing people inside their homes.
Sergio Cabanas, head of the country's National Disaster Management Agency (Conred), said the town of El Rodeo had been "buried".
Other towns affected include Alotenango and San Miguel Los Lotes.
Rescuers are still trying to reach a number of villages and the death toll is expected to rise. Temporary shelters have been set up for about 3,000 residents who have been evacuated.
Efrain Gonzalez, who fled El Rodeo with his wife and one-year-old daughter, said he had had to leave behind his two older children, aged four and ten, trapped in the family home.
Local resident Ricardo Reyes was forced to abandon his home: "The only thing we could do was run with my family and we left our possessions in the house.

Now that all the danger has passed, I came to see how our house was - everything is a disaster."
A total of about 1.7 million people have been affected in four regions.
The country's main airport has now reopened.
Officials have advised people to wear masks as protection against falling ash.
Fuego is one of Latin America's most active volcanoes.
A major eruption devastated nearby farms in 1974, but no deaths were recorded.
Another eruption in February this year sent ash 1.7km (1.1 miles) into the sky.
Sunday's event was on a much greater scale.
This eruption is Guatemala's deadliest such event since 1902 when an eruption of the Santa Maria volcano killed thousands of people.
Guatemala's national institute of volcanology,
Insivumeh told people to keep away from the affected ravines as there is a possibility of "a reactivation".
The institute also warned of the possibility of lahars - when water mixes with volcanic deposits forming a destructive debris flow - which could affect villages and hamlets to the south, south-west and south-east.

A second eruption at Guatemala's Fuego volcano causes panic as death toll raises to 75 with almost 200 missing


UPDATES - Guatemala Fuego Volcano Fuego_volcano_6

Guatemala's disaster agency says 192 people are listed as missing with a further 75 people dead following Sunday's deadly eruption of the Volcano of Fire.
Agency director Sergio Cabanas made the announcement Tuesday evening. Earlier in the day, the country's National Institute of Forensic Sciences said 75 bodies have been recovered but only 23 of those have been identified.
Cabanas says some of the missing people could be among the unidentified bodies.
Super-heated volcanic debris swept through small communities on the volcano's flanks Sunday with little warning for residents.
Some homes were buried to their roof lines in ash.
Rescuers were pulled back Tuesday after volcanic activity increased and new flows were spotted descending the volcano's slopes.
A new explosion at Guatemala's Fuego volcano prompted emergency services to order evacuations from the surrounding areas on Tuesday.
National disaster agency Conred ordered the evacuations and said that hot gas and molten rock were descending from the volcano.
More than 70 deaths have been reported since the volcano - whose name means 'fire' in Spanish - erupted on Sunday, according to a Reuters report.
National Route 14 has been closed as a preventive measure, according to Conred, and people are being evacuated to the municipal stadium of Escuintla.
The National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology (Insivumeh) said the descent of the pyroclastic flow was recorded at 14:25 local time, by the Las Lahas and Jute canyon, and warned that the flow could soon reach the Palin-Escuintla highway.
As of 13:00 local time Tuesday, more than 1,700,000 people had been affected, with 3,271 forced to evacuate.
According to Conred, 75 people have so far been killed and 46 injured.
The initial eruptions on Sunday and Monday were the worst by El Fuego in four decades.
The fast-moving flows with temperatures as high as 700 degrees Celsius and hot ash and volcanic gases that can cause rapid asphyxiation caught many off guard.
The eruption sent molten rock and ash up to 33,000 feet into the sky and cascading down into villages surrounding the volcano.
Most of the deaths are caused by Pyroclastic flows.
Volcanologist Dr. Madelaine Willcock told Direct Relief that: 'Pyroclastic flows occur when eruption columns become too dense to keep rising and instead collapse down the flank of the volcano.
They are made up of gas, volcanic material, and other debris, can travel at hundreds of kilometres per hour, and be hundreds of degrees Celsius - making them one of the deadliest volcanic phenomena.'
