Pitatus (97 km), is a circular crater, large in size, basaltic lava flooded by Mare Nubium.

Its edge is not uniform in thickness. To the north, it is less visible than the southern wall, where is surrounded by highlands. In the center of the crater is a central peak, and the floor is smooth.

On the south of Pitatus are two craters called Wurzelbauer (88 km) and Gauricus (79 km) and sticking to the western edge is Hesiodus (43 km).
