Nearside Named Features
- Asclepi (Van Langren's Caleni).
- Asiae pars (J.Hewelcke's disallowed name for the south-southeastern limb region, although E.A.Whitaker isn't really sure about that).
- Chandrayaan-2's possible landingsite between Manzinus C and Simpelius N, see: http://bit.ly/2E9fOg5
- Cortes (a disallowed name from H.P.Wilkins for Demonax A).
- Demonax (called Jungnitz by J.H.Franz).
- Ideler (Van Langren's Derienni).
- Jacobi (Van Langren's Caroli D. Mant.).
- Moleri (Van Langren's disallowed name for Baco B).
- Mutus (Van Langren's Casimiri Pol. P.).
- Mutus-Vlacq Basin (an unofficial name) (see also Rukl Zone 75).
- Rho (Van Langren's disallowed name for Clairaut A) (?) (E.A.Whitaker seems to be uncertain about that one).
- Terra Fertilitatis (Riccioli's discontinued name for the whole of Chart 74).
- Vallis Zach-Tannerus (or Vallis Tannerus-Zach) (an unofficial name from D.Caes for some sort of valley-like or chain-like groove north of Zach, running all the way eastward to the south of Tannerus and Asclepi) (see also Chart 73).

Farside Named Features
(The following features are not formally included in the present Rükl rectangle, but they are adjacent to it and their centers are less than 10° beyond the mean limb -- so they may be seen here in whole or in part with a favorable libration)

Visibility of the southern part of the farside's Southpole-Aitken Basin
When the libration is favourable for the limb regions near the southpole, something of the farside's Southpole-Aitken Basin could be seen as a system of parallel looking layers between the southern craters. These layers are segments of the southernmost (and earth-faced) part of this giant basin. - DannyCaes Oct 13, 2015
