    Combined sedimentological and structural analysis was carried out in the field and on 2D seismic reflection profiles to recognize pre-orogenic structures in a Cretaceous fold-and-thrust belt. Detailed field observations were made in the Keszthely Hills, Western Hungary, while 2D seismic interpretation was carried out in the neighbouring Zala Basin. As a result, a fault-controlled intraplatform basin system was identified by a detailed analysis of bounding faults, and related outcrop-scale structures. The Norian–Rhaetian (227–201.3 Ma) synsedimentary faulting was associated with talus breccia formation, small-scale faulting, and dyke formation, in addition to slumping and other soft-sediment deformations. Based on the distribution of talus breccia, WNW–ESE-trending map-scale normal faults were identified in the Keszthely Hills, which is in agreement with the directly observed outcrop-scale synsedimentary faults. On seismic sections, similar WNW- or NW-trending Late Triassic normal faults were identified based on thickness variations of the syn-rift sediments and the presence of wedge-shaped bodies of talus breccia. Normal faulting occurred already in the Norian, and extensional tectonics was active through the Early and Middle Jurassic. The Late Triassic grabens of the western Transdanubian Range could be correlated with those in western part of the Southern Alps, and the Bajuvaric nappe system of the Northern Calcareous Alps. These grabens were situated on the proximal Adriatic margin, and they represent the first sign of the Alpine Tethys rifting. The locus of extension was laterally migrated westward, towards the distal Adriatic margin during Early and Middle Jurassic. © 2018, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.
