This is an odd volcanic feature on the floor of Patsaev Q ([/Patsaev Patsaev] Q was provisionally called “Cheniér” on the LTO and Topophotomap – a name that was never adopted by the [/IAU IAU]). It consists of dome-like flows around a central pit. The flows cover a diameter of about 10 km, but judging from its stated dimension, the IAU name applies only to the central caldera.
