Structures in units within a neritic calcareous sequence in lower Carboniferous shales are ascribed to penecontemporaneous deformation. Strong, preferred orientation of the structures in deformed units supports the hypothesis that their formation was due to a combination of subhorizontal shear deformation and foundering. It is pointed out that the deformed bodies appear to be more intimately controlled by local than regional factors.
