  • Einstein
  • Hercynian Mountains/ Montes Hercynii (discontinued IAU names).
  • Krafft
  • Littus Eclipticum (Riccioli's discontinued name for the limb region of Chart 17) (the exact pinpoint locations of the northern and southern boundaries of this region are uncertain or not known) (Van Langren called it Littus Philippicum).

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)
