It is very easy to locate craters with their name, in the image below.
In these images crater Deslandres (234 km) dominates the area. It is the "lying heart" as I like to call it, and I think it is not hard to figure out why. It is framed here only three quarters of this huge crater.
Deslandres crater name is given from Henri Alexandre Deslandres (July 24, 1853 - January 15 1948). It was during his life a French astronomer, director of astronomical observatories in Meudon and Paris, who conducted intensive studies of the behavior of the Sun's atmosphere.
Another crater that I have discussed in other articles, is Pitatus (97 km), whose floor is beautifully observed with central peaks.
