do earthquakes occur in areas without identified large faults?


The key words you use are "identified" and "large." As far as I know, earthquakes occur at fault lines, whether or not they have been identified or are large.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "earthquakes faults" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
