Geometry
- The symmetry group of the tiling is *442 (p4m).
- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 45°.
- Contains three regular 8-pointed star polygons with vertex angle of 90°.
- There are five non-regular reflective tiles (including 2 kites).
- The tiling satisfies the interlace condition and has two finite interlaces and two infinite interlaces with straight cross-overs.
- The tiling is edge-to-edge.
- As drawn, contains about 319 polygons.
