LO-IV-191H Greaves is the bowl-shaped crater at the top of the frame, with the large ghostly ring of Lick south of it. Ruined 23-km Lick A is partially visible just below Lick. The wrinkle-ridge in the upper right is not part of any named system.

- A fully illuminated Greaves (Lick D) was captured in Apollo 17's panoramic ITEK camera frame AS17-P-2687. You can't miss Greaves because here it is the most eye-catching formation!
- Greaves was also captured in Apollo 17's oblique south-looking Mapping/ Metric Fairchild camera frame AS17-M-1639 (rightward of the frame's centre).
