Well I really think I might have some this time, spreading from lower centre upwards in a plume to top left.

...and accompanied by boulder tracks from the same source moving to centre right side.

Then I'll try again with this one:
left side of image, from centreline two-thirds up towards the side
and again
right side of image, from just above small crater on edge towards the centre, dropping to just above the visible crater midway along bottom edge

Of course I may still be misidentifying them, but happily await professional guidance.

Hey Weezerd, those look like mare wrinkle ridges to me. Notice how the lighting reveals that you are looking at scarps, or cliffs, facing the top of the image?

Really good picture, though!

I flagged this as interesting.

Linear feature at the lower right quarter.

Possible crater chain??

Do I have crater chains here, crossing the left lower quadrant and travelling from bottom centre up the side?
(And ignoring the dinosaur fossil in the top right quadrant as we're not looking for them)

It's a something!
She said helpfully...

Think I'd have gone for linear - other.

I think this is a crater chain? From top centre to lower right corner?
But still searching a bit in the dark, so to speak!

Help requested again ~
are these crater chains in the centre of the image?

Same, well similar, question:
Are these crater chains down the left side of the image?

Crater chains down the right side....
and maybe boulder tracks down the left side too?

I'm not seeing any crater chains in this image.
But I am seeing wrinkle ridges, either in mare or impact melt, on the left side of the image. On the upper right, there is something that reminds me of subdued ejecta from an impact crater, but without more context, I wouldn't commit myself.

I have put a plea in the Team Area for help with identifying crater chains.
