The main types of seismites are reviewed following the proposed classification and are illustrated by our own case studies. The large variety of seismites, depends on the sedimentologic, hydrodynamic and diagenetic characters of the deposits subject to seismic shocks. On a given site, generally different types of seismites cane be related to the same seismic event. These peculiar but widespread sedimentary structures are not always univocal and may often be related to different causes. Therefore, the structures discussed must necessarily be placed in a detailed geological context.
