- The symmetry group of the tiling is *442 (p4m).
- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 45°.
- Contains four regular two-pointed star polygons with vertex angle of 45°.
- Contains five regular 8-pointed star polygons with vertex angle of 90°.
- There are 8 non-regular reflective tiles (including one kite and one dart) and one reflective pair.
- The tiling satisfies the interlace condition and has four finite interlaces and no infinite interlace with straight cross-overs.
- The tiling is edge-to-edge.
- As drawn, contains about 1823 polygons.
