The definition of a recumbent fold as one with subhorizontal axial surface is best with difficulties when recumbent folds plunge. Recumbent folds are redefined here as folds whose axial planes give subhorizontal trace in profile plane, with the fold-axis plunging at any angle up to 80°. A neutral to slightly antiformal recumbent fold half mile across and plunging 75° is described from the Pre-Cambrian metamorphic terrain in Eastern India.
