Do you see three basin rings here? Look closer. And step back for a more synoptic stretching from Theophilus to Fracastorius. In fact, if this ridge ring is the boundary of an inner area of collapse to a lower level (as at Crisium) it might explain what happened to the missing northern arc of Fracastorius' rim.
