Abstract

•We examine the patterns and spatial distributions of rayed craters on Dione.•We find that the ray system of Creusa crater extended over Dione.•The rays deposited on the trailing hemisphere have been partially erased.•This is due to implantation of dark particles, found throughout Saturn system.•Our observations imply that the implantation event occurred very recently.
