Background image source
- Benitez (a disallowed name from H.P.Wilkins for Pontanus C, at the upper margin of Chart 66).
- Breislak (Van Langren's Lantsbergi) (?) (E.A.Whitaker seems to be uncertain about that one).
- Buch B (immediately north-northwest of Buch itself) (this bowl-shaped craterlet shows a remarkable ejectablanket of both bright and dark rays, which makes it a distinct object on Hi-Res photographs of the Full Moon).
- Clairaut (Van Langren's Danesii).
- Gemma Frisius (Van Langren's Radsevillii) (J.Hewelcke's Montes Armeniae, together with the IAU's Goodacre).
- Goodacre (J.Hewelcke's Montes Armeniae, together with the IAU's Gemma Frisius).
- Kaiser (J.Hewelcke's Mons Fortis).
- Maurolycus (Van Langren's Estensis D. Mutinae, J.Hewelcke's Mons Calchistan) (on his map mentioned as Calchastan).
- Poisson Alpha (mountain-like elevation south of Poisson A) (see page 138 in Tony Dethier's Maanmonografieen).
- Reypastor (a disallowed name from H.P.Wilkins for Faraday G).
- Rho (Van Langren's disallowed name for Clairaut A) (?) (E.A.Whitaker seems to be uncertain about that one).
- Short cleft (not really a name or nickname) (according to W.Goodacre there's a short cleft between Maurolycus and Stofler, of which he wrote: "A very unusual object in this portion of the moon's surface").
- Terra Fertilitatis (Riccioli's discontinued name for the whole of Chart 66).
- The Link (a nickname for the chain of craters from Gemma Frisius to Rabbi Levi, see also Chart 67).
