Crater in Detail

This crater sits on the north western edge of crater Wirtz on the eastern edge of the Argyre impact basin. The lack of further cratering in the basin would suggest that this is a realaticely young crater. There is, however, evidence of erosion of the crater side wall along the southern and eastern rim.
