Background image source
- Beaumont Delta (hill south of Beaumont and Beaumont M) (see Chart 85 in the Times Atlas of the Moon).
- Beaumont's Twenty Nine East Ridge (an unofficial name from D.Caes for the officially unnamed ridge at 29° East, north of Beaumont) (see also Chart 47 for the northern part of it near Theophilus and Madler) (note: the name Twenty Nine East Ridge is some sort of lunar equivalent of the terrestrial Ninety East Ridge on the floor of the Indian Ocean).
- Bohnenberger Lambda (small hill between Bohnenberger A and Santbech M) (see Chart 86 in the Times Atlas of the Moon).
- Dorsa Bohnenberger (an unofficial name from D.Caes for the system of wrinkle ridges west of Bohnenberger, at the eastern part of Mare Nectaris).
- Fracastorius (Van Langren's Nassauii, J.Hewelcke's Lacus Thospitis).
- Mare Nectaris (Van Langren's Sinus Batavicus, J.Hewelcke's Sinus Extremus Ponti).
- Montes Pyrenaeus (J.Hewelcke's Montes Caucasus).
- Palus Areesa (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for a low-albedo area southwest of Fracastorius).
- Palus Lychnitis (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for a low-albedo area southwest of Santbech).
- Palus Mantiana (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for a low-albedo area southeast of Fracastorius).
- Piccolomini (Van Langren's Noyelles, J.Hewelcke's Montes Sogdiani).
- Richard's Ridge (a strange case, according to W.R.Birt's descriptions this should have been a name for a ridge near Fracastorius, see Lunar Objects Suitable for Observation, December 1879, page 298).
- Romana (a disallowed name from H.P.Wilkins for Fracastorius D, or... perhaps for the exceptionally bright ray-crater Polybius A on Chart 57)(?).
- Rosse (J.F.J.Schmidt's Beer).
- Rosse's Ghost (a nickname from D.Caes for the ghost-crater north-northeast of Rosse).
- Santbech Zeta (elongated hill southwest of Santbech, west-northwest of Santbech A).
- Terra Vigoris (Riccioli's discontinued name for the southern half of Chart 58).
- Trifid crater (a nickname from D.Caes for the unusual triangle-shaped depression at the eastern disappearing end of the rim of Fracastorius).
- Voutzinas (F.C.Lamech's disallowed name for Fracastorius B).
