'Star' Tessellations - Type 7

(click on the image for a larger version)

The above edge network is a faceting is of the cells of an 8,8,4 tessellation, only alternating octagons (in a checkerboard pattern) are faceted.  A copy of this network superimposed on the original 8, 8, 4 tessellation is linked here

As only three edges meet at each vertex, only one tessellation can be formed using this network:

        8, 4/3, 8/5
K:-, B:152, C: 2 4/3 4 | = t'{4 : 4}

Clicking onto the vertex figures above will show the sample cell superimposed on the above network.
