    We show using numerical simulations that herringbone type traveling wave patterns arise as a dissipative structure in an anisotropic complex Swift-Hohenberg equation. In the herringbone pattern, zig and zag rolls alternate spatially along the x direction. The herringbone pattern becomes unstable as a control parameter is changed, then irregular patches of zig and zag structures appear.
