The regional-scale salients and recesses in the Appalachian orogen are well accepted as being a product of tectonic inheritance. Smaller map-view curves are present in the slate belt of the Taconic allochthon, which lies between the New York recess and Quebec salient, and we investigate the possibility that these curves are also related to the geometry of the preexisting Iapetan rift margin. The orientation of the slaty cleavage (S2) and mineral/stretching lineation (L2) and the geometry of syntectonic fibers were used to identify along-strike differences in the nature of the main stage of deformation (D2...
