Abstract : Lin et al. (2018) propose a model of Proterozoic-Mesozoic evolution of the South China block (SCB) involving West and East Cathaysia separated by the Northwest Fujian fault. They assume a northeastward translation of East Cathaysia after an Early Paleozoic orogeny due to the collision of West Cathaysia with a “proposed terrane”. This model ignores most of the available, robust field data.
