The author has observed many examples of coaxial refolding in the Moinian rocks of the North-West Highlands of Scotland. This coaxial nature of refolding is not the result of the continuation of a single movement phase, but developed where a later fold refolded both limbs of an earlier fold. It is concluded that the coaxiality results from a strong flexural component in the later folding.
