Index page for lunar features whose names start with the letter D

Italics indicate farside features.

Note: if you want to explore an experimental list of new names for the many wrinkle ridges (and clusters of wrinkle ridges) at the moon's mare regions, please take a look at the page DORSUM. See: http://the-moon.wikispaces.com/Lunar+Dorsum


Note: J.Hewelcke's Mons Dalanguer is mentioned as Mons Delanguer on page 204 of Ewen A. Whitaker's Mapping and Naming the Moon.
