LO-IV-184H The 29-km depression just below Reimarus is Reimarus A. The similar depression in the upper right is unnamed, as is the prominent 14-km diameter crater on the floor of Reimarus. The linear groove running into the frame at the lower left is the eastern terminus of Vallis Rheita.
- Depth data from Kurt Fisher database
- Westfall, 2000: 3.05 km
- From the shadows in LO-IV-184H, the west rim of Reimarus seems to have an irregular height ranging from about 2250-3370 m.
- Satellite crater Reimarus A is on the ALPO list of bright ray craters.
- Given that Reimarus A is the rather old, degraded crater straddling Reimarus' south rim, it seems likely that this is a misprint referring instead either to the unnamed young crater on Reimarus' floor, or (much more likely) to the fresh young and bright crater Reimarus H, located a short distance to the southeast. Reimarus H is small and bright enough to have served as a selenodetic control point. In the 1994 ULCN its position is listed as 49.240°S/62.217°E. - JimMosher
- Reimarus R a pre-Nectarian crater (Wilhelms, 1987)
- Named for Nicolai Reymers Baer (c. 1550-c. 1600), a German mathematician.
- According to Whitaker (p. 224), this name was introduced by Schmidt.
