We document a previously unrecognized, thin-skinned arc-continental collisional zone, termed here the Colon fold-thrust belt, which trends northeastward for 350 km near the Honduras-Nicaragua border region. The Colon belt occurs in three collinear segments: (1) a 200-km-long belt of remote but well-exposed Jurassic–Late Cretaceous rock outcrops described from original geologic mapping presented in this study; (2) a 75-km-long subsurface belt of Jurassic–Late Cretaceous rocks known from onland seismic reflection studies and exploration drilling for oil; and (3) an offshore 75-km-long subsurface belt of Late Cretaceous to Eocene rocks known from exploration studies. These three segments share a continuity of the...
