Adjective(1) of or on the left(2) preferring to use left foot or hand or eye
(1) The latter species has a smooth, valvatiform, dextrally coiled teleoconch and a sinistral , anastrophic (coaxial heterostrophic) protoconch.(2) The temporal distribution of first appearances of sinistral clades as documented by fossils generally differs from that of clades with a labral tooth.(3) Deposition of the unconformably overlying Red Bay Group was terminated in latest Lochkovian times by renewed sinistral strike-slip faulting.(4) In conclusion, the geological characteristics of the South China Sea cannot be explained by a pull-apart model involving a releasing bend of a sinistral strike-slip fault.(5) These gastropods have slender, high-spired, multiwhorled shells bearing a sinistral protoconch and were united by Knight in the family Streptacididae.(6) Although sinistral individuals are known in many normally dextral species, left-handedness as a characteristic of species is rare in most gastropod clades.(7) Nevertheless, sinistral and dextral Pb elements are virtually mirror images, that is, they are more alike than the corresponding elements in L. variabilis.(8) This paper tentatively identifies two lineaments and a fault that may relate to sinistral strike-slip faulting in the pre-Paradox Formation basement beneath Upheaval Dome.(9) The unusual change in shell coiling from dextral to sinistral during their ontogeny represents a character which makes their recognition in the fossil record easy.(10) Although data on vertical displacement on the Klima fault zone are limited, the horizontal component is clearly much larger, and the Klima fault zone represents a sinistral strike-slip fault.(11) This protoconch is discoidal or almost dicoidal and sinistral .(12) If the umbilicate side is directed downward and the flat side upward, this gives the impression the shell is sinistral or a left-handed spiral, because the aperture when held toward the observer is on the left.(13) Both species described here are sinistrally coiled, but a similar pattern of ornamentation is present on two Pennsylvanian species that are dextrally coiled.(14) He matched two apparently similar granite intrusions on either side of the fault and argued that they had been displaced sinistrally about 100 km.(15) Further evidence that species-level sinistrality originated in environments where predator-induced selection is weak comes from the biology of living left-handed species.(16) The sinistrally transpressive nature of the Baltica-Laurentia collision deduced by Soper et al. is confirmed.
