While browsing the LROC site I found that this is in Hyginus Crater.

That turbulent mound upper centre, looks like an eruption to me, though I don't suppose it could be.....well not recently anyway?

A LOT of volcanic activity here, possibly?

Now can somebody tell me what this rippled terrain down the left side might be?

I see lots of those wrinkles - cooling lava?
Not sure but I like the bouncing boulder tracks!
This is in a mare area (border of Mare Serenitatis and Mare Tranquillitatis), so mare wrinkle ridges are reasonable.
But check out that diagonal linear feature, running from the upper middle to the lower left. I think that's a crater chain.

Took me ages to get my eye in there - but it does look like the tutorial images of crater chains you're right!

As Jules said, hard to pick out the crater chain effect.  Irene, do you have photoshop or such, that you could mark out what you are suspecting to be the crater chain? It would be a great help for slowmos like me!

They do look like elongate pits to me - I've had some of those and classified them as such.

Here weeserd. The red arrows point out the proposed crater chain.
Does that help? The picture does seem kind of dark...

I thought that was a bouncing boulder track. :-\ Maybe we (I!) need a closer view.
I thought there was a hint of a crater chain (at least like the tutorial pictures) underneath that.

Maybe.....
