LO-IV-189H Repsold is the large circular enclosure in the center. Straddling its southwest rim is 44-km Repsold G, through which runs a part of Rimae Repsold. The 9-km concentric crater on the northeast part of Repsold's floor is Repsold A. Beyond it, outside the main rim is 38-km Repsold B (upper right corner).
