Explanation:
probably found it...see link below

(quote):
To the north, the east-west trending Telemzane Arch experienced relatively mild and periodic uplift, especially during the Mid and Late Hercynian orogeny and was subsequently affected by a strong erosion of Paleozoic series. To the east-southeast, the Jeffara Basin, which originated as part of the Paleozoic sag basin, was initiated as a separate entity during the Carboniferous, possibly as a dextral pull-apart basin. It is a zone of pronounced subsidence but with periodic uplift especially during the Permian, the Late Triassic, the Late Jurassic and the Mid-Late Cretaceous. In particular the whole area was uplifted and eroded during the Latest Cretaceous orogeny.

orogeny


Explanation:
Have no idea what "Tardyhecínica" refers to. Could be a geological period or place name.

Anyway, orogeny is the variety of processes that occur during mountain-building, including deposition, deformation, metamorphisms, intrusions, volcaniv activity, oceanic trenches, etc.

Late Herzynian orogeny.


Explanation:
Takes a stretch of the imagination. Sounds like a dictation badly taken down in which someone said "orogenia hercínica tardía" and another person's neurons blew up.

tardihercinic orogeny / orogeny of the late Hercinic


Explanation:

El ciclo hercínico es el que abarca los periodos pérmico, carbonífero y devónico de la era paleozoica o primaria. Está mal escrito, puesto que sería "tardihercínico" o "tardehercínico" y no "tardyhecínico", es decir, del periodo tardío del ciclo hercínico (of the late Hercinic or tardihercinic).

Orogenia es lo mismo que orogénesis (orogeny, orogenesis, mountain building, orogenetic movements [EURODICAUTOM])
