This once-named protrusion of Mare Imbrium into the Carpathian Mountains between T. Mayer and Gay-Lussac is no longer part of the IAU Nomenclature.
- Named for a region in the terrestrial Carpathians.
- This name was introduced as “Pietrosul Bucht” by Krieger and König. It was modified to “Pietrosul Bay” for inclusion in the original IAU nomenclature of 1935 as prepared by Blagg and Müller. The name was deleted by Kuiper et al., whose changes to Blagg and Müller (published in the Photographic Lunar Atlas) were approved by the IAU in 1961. (Whitaker, p. 226)
