Between the Apennines and crater Wallace is a secondary ridge, as if Mare Imbrium has two concentric rims. I have been looking for a name for this on maps and have not found any. Has this ridge been named?

Brian, have you asked in the Lunar Observing forum? There are folks there who know everything about the Moon.
