Serpent people:
In US, SG, UA, etc., the prehuman inhabitants of the earth, particularly the Thurian continent. They had a colony on Hyperborea in the Miocene Era, where they had strange cities of of curious buildings and Babelian towers (i.e. sky-reaching) and were served by the Goat-spawn and some shoggoths. They were greater sorcerers than humans. A few remain in the caverns under Mount Voormithadreth, but other pockets might exist as the serpent folk have the power to resemble other bipeds.

In FTG, the "daughter" of Zvilpogghua. Little else is known, but some can be infered: she was born on Kythamil and is probably the "mother" of the Formless Spawn. She mated with a Voormi, giving rise to the Azathothian strain in Voormis exitibited by Knygathin Zhaum, her direct descendent. If she is one of the Formless Spawn then she probably dwells in N'Kai, having come to Earth en masse with Tsathoggua and the Voormis. [C.A.Smith; L.J.Cornford]

Rare and extinct plants and artifacts are found frozen and preserved in the ice of Thule and are prized among sorcerers. Often called simply Thule. [L.Carter (C.A.Smith); L.Cornford]

Here is something of a potted timeline, taking the founding of Commoriom as the starting point. The exact time of Hyperborea is unclear. Some stories mention Miocene Era (26 to 12 million B.C.), others feature living examples of such extinct lifeforms as mammoths, dinosaurs, and sabar-toothed tigers. While ID mentions the Pleistocene Era (2.5 million to 650,000 B.C.), certainly the destruction lies in an Ice Age (prob. the Paleolithic Era, or Stone Age of 650,000 to 8,000 B.C. which saw off Homo erectus). The only "exact" date I known of is in a letter from H.P.Lovecraft (dated March 2, 1932) which puts "the heyday of Hyperborean Commoriom" at 100,000 B.C., the same time as R.E.Howard's King Kull stories, which fits nicely, but is not authoritative:

Tscho Vulpanomi:
In TA, WAW, WS, LP, etc., the semi-legendary volcanic region of the far south, probably corresponding with modern Iceland. Here a lake of boiling asphaltum beats forever at the sea. The dread volcanic mountain Achoravomas belches rivers of flame over the land. Crystals of tourmaline are found here, with diamond-sanded, ruby-gravelled shores. [C.A.Smith; L.Carter]

A place of shadow-haunted tombs visited by Eibon and Zaljis. Note that between the first and second printings of "The Stairs in the Crypt" the province changed from Ulphar to Uthnor. Since the second printing, in The Years Best Fantasy Stories 3, was under Carter's editorship, I assume the alteration to be an authorised change. [L.Carter (C.A.Smith)]

Uzuldaroum itself fell to the advancing ice when Aphoom Zhah was freed. The land around Uzuldaroum is described thus: "an agreeable country, full of farms and orcards and running waters and green, flowery woods" which suggests that it is not without its waterways.

Deeper caves lead to the dwellings of Haon-Dor and the serpent folk, while even deeper is the realm of gods. It seems that when Hyperborea was split up by ice the peaks of Voormithadreth were split and "moved" (we know not how) as it has been identified with single-peaked mountains in Arkham County [Chaosium] and Siberia [C.Wilson].
