Nearside Named Features
- Abel (was this crater once called Santacruz by H.P.Wilkins?).
- Furnerius (Van Langren's Curtii or Ligni) (?) (E.A.Whitaker seems to be uncertain about these two names) (J.Hewelcke's Mons Nerossus).
- Hamilton (called Kelvin by J.H.Franz).
- Headlights (a nickname from C.A.Wood for the high-albedo raycraters Furnerius A and Stevinus A) (see Additional Information below).
- Hiten-Hagoromo (Hagoromo crash-landed on April 10, 1993, southeast of Stevinus) (34.3° South/ 55.6° East, according to Wikipedia).
- Ibanez (a disallowed name from H.P.Wilkins for Marinus K).
- Mons Paropamisus (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for the nimbi of Snellius A, Furnerius A, etc...).
- Rima Furnerius
- Rimae Hase (see also Rukl Zone 59).
- Santacruz (a disallowed name from H.P.Wilkins for a crater somewhere to the east of Furnerius, perhaps Abel?).
- Stevinus (Van Langren's Segueri).
- Terra Vigoris (Riccioli's discontinued name for the limb region northeast, east, and southeast of Furnerius) (see also Chart 60 for the strange Goris case).
- Vallis Snellius
Farside Named Features
(The following features are not formally included in the present Rükl rectangle, but they are adjacent to it and their centers are less than 10° beyond the mean limb -- so they may be seen here in whole or in part with a favorable libration)

- An interesting photograph of the Headlights (the high-albedo raycraters Furnerius A and Stevinus A) is included on page 20 of the 21st Century Atlas of the Moon by Charles A. Wood and Maurice J.S. Collins. - DannyCaes Aug 15, 2015
