LAMO image 31 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 31 features an unamed crater and region, northwest of Mondamin crate in the southern hemisphere. A smooth ejecta blanket surrounds the crater in upper right portion of the imaged region. This suggests that the impact was relatively recent. A much larger and older crater is near the center of the region. The rim of this crater has been mostly worn away from other impacts over time. A small portion of another possible crater rim sits just to the left of the fresh crater, near entirely wiped away from the more recent impact.
