... Norian (Upper Triassic) sediments in western Nevada were deposited in a west-facing successor basin which was formed following the collision of the microcontinent Sonomia in the Late Paleozoic. These strata were deposited on a shelf and in a deep basin and consist of siliciclastic sandy...

... (Hallam 1977). The occurrence of Weyla in Wrangellia, Stikinia and the John Day (Oregon) and Sonomia (Nevada) terranes is a clear indication of E Pacific affinities. All the cited genera, except the boreal Arctoasteroceras, occur in the Andes of Peru and N Chile, for which there is no evidence...

... 1997 ; Dickinson and Lawton 2003 ). The Permian–Triassic Sonoma orogeny also likely involved a west-dipping subduction zone. The collision of North America with the microcontinent Sonomia accreted continental crust to the Cordilleran margin and led to a reversal in subduction polarity ( Speed 1979...

... the stratigraphically defined continental edge to be located at the suture between the Precambrian crust and the Paleozoic arc (Sonomia) that was accreted in Late Permian to Early Triassic time. They suggest that vertical movement occurred along the suture zone as accretion stresses relaxed, accompanied by basaltic...

..., 2004 , 2006 , 2013 ). Similarly to the Antler orogeny, the Sonoma orogeny is the result of the eastwards migration and accretion of exotic island-arc systems belonging to the Sonomia microplate onto the North American Plate around the Permian–Triassic boundary (Burchfiel & Davis, 1975...
