Effect of the stellar spin axis inclination on the shape of the light modulation produced by a single spot. The case of a high-latitude spot in a low-inclination star is shown in the top panel and that of a high-inclination star in the bottom panel. The spot is plotted in red over the disc of the star, while the dotted circle indicates the equatorial plane of the star.
