Craters in this area are very dense and chaotic. Manzinus/Mutus pair of craters and make it an easier orientation.
Mutus and Manzinus are craters at the Moon's south pole. Mutus has a diameter of 79 km and a depth of 3.7 km. Although a relatively small crater compared to other craters in the area, Mutus has many small satellite craters from Mutus A to Mutus Z, only that there are not I and U. Mutus B and V are the two craters visible on its floor.
Manzinus is closer to the Moon's south, and is bigger than Mutus, with a diameter of 98 km. It has no large craters visible on the floor as Mutus.
