Exotic terrane is a block of crustal dimensions that bears no resemblance (structural or metamorphic history, faunal assemblage) to the mass to which it presently attached; commonly derived from the opposite side of an ocean. Boundaries of exotic terranes with the masses to which they are attached are always tectonic.
