Synthetic faults - a fault that is subsidiary to a main fault, formed in the same stress regime, and is ~ parallel to the main fault Shape and displacement of normal faults - Folding

Antithetic fault a fault that is subsidiary to a major fault, formed in the same stress regime, but dips at a high angle to the major fault, and has offset in the opposite direction
