Geometry
- The symmetry group of the tiling is *442 (p4m).
- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 22.5°.
- Contains 8 squares.
- Contains 7 regular two-pointed star polygons with vertex angle of 45°.
- Contains one regular four-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 45°.
