(2010) recently interpreted sector-boundary zoned chiastolite as syntectonic on the basis of the presence of curved type 2 quartz inclusions (intergrowths).
It is underlain by syntectonic, late-tectonic, and posttectonic granitoids [9, 10] which intrude in older metamorphic rocks.

Farther north and also in the Melford Formation of White and Boehner (2008), a foliated granitic sheet, considered to be syntectonic, yielded two concordant monazite grains with ages of 551 [+ or -] 1 Ma, interpreted to be igneous crystallization ages (Keppie et al.
Faults, folding, diaprism after deposition and syntectonic events are the main reasons.
Moreover, the syntectonic unconformities developed in the upper part of the stratigraphic succession record the timing of the anticline growth.
Syntectonic sedimentation associated Neogene structures in the Precordillera of Moquella Zone, Tarapaca (19[grados]15'S, northern Chile).
Among their topics are seismic imaging of the lithosphere structure of the Zagros mountain belt, new magnetic fabric data and their comparison with palaeo-stress markers in the Western Fars Arc and their tectonic implications, insights from sand box models on the structure of the Mountain Front Flexure along the Anaran anticline in the Pusht-e Kuh Arc, the influence of Late Cretaceous tectonic processes on sedimentation patterns along the northeastern Arabian plate margin, and spatial and temporal diagenetic evolution of syntectonic sediments in a pulsatory uplifted coastal escarpment as revealed in the Plio-Pleistocene Makran subduction zone.
Since the crystallization age of the studied granitoid and the Vepriai gabbro is unknown, the question remains whether the emplacement of both intrusions was syntectonic to the DPDZ shearing or the DPDZ deformation superimposed older magmatic rocks.
