LRO WAC images

What do these craters have in common? They are all from a region of the Moon that previously had not been well imaged by spacecraft. And they are non-spectacular features that are more characteristic of the Moon than the beauties we normally seek out. I did screen captures of these images from LRO WAC mosaics from the LROC WMS Image Map and from the LRO WAC Quick Map. I selected these craters because the LRO higher Sun views complemented the lower illumination Lunar Orbiter images already posted in the Moon-Wiki pages for these craters, making the wiki even more valuable. Does anyone recognize these B list craters?
