B) More detailed maps of the Red River fault and its relation to the rock units of the northeastern part of the Lanping-Simao unit in the Ailao Shan (lower left) and faults of the southeastern part of the Red River fault and adjacent Cenozoic rocks. Inset map in upper right shows location to regional structures (XX = Xianshuihe fault; RR = Red River fault) . Xianshuihe-Xiaojiang, Red River, and Dali fault systems, China west– to north-trending axes and cut by thrust faults with similar trend. The active Chenghai fault forms the northwestern boundary of the Chuxiong basin (Fig.

L993, l995), but the mylonitic rocks in the Xuelong Shan have not been dated. The Mesozoic rocks of the LanpingSimao belt narrow and pinch out northward against Triassic volcanic rocks along the Tongdian fault. Mesozoic rocks of the Lanping-Simao belt were folded in Eocene, Oligocene, and postOligocene time. Folds trend north to northwest and form arcuate patterns, whereas the belt of metamorphic rocks in the Ailao Shan, Diancang Shan, and Xuelong Shan form a linear belt. Folds of the Lanping-Siamo fold belt generally strike obliquely, with a more northerly strike, into the metamorphic rocks.

At the map scale, the right-slip Qujiang and Jian- shui faults appear to be left-laterally bent, but whether that shear is being taken up on numerous small faults with small displacements or low slip rate is unknown. There are discrete faults that we have not included in the specific faults discussed as part of the Xianshuihe-Xiaojiang system because their displacement is small. For example, a fault with small, but measurable, displacement lying west of the Songming basin forms a boundary of the north-trending Heilongtan basin filled with Quaternary sediments (Fig.
