Relations to other Regular Maps

Its dual is the dual Dyck map.

Its Petrie dual is {6,3}(4,4).

It can be 2-fold covered to give S5:{8,3}.
It is a 2-fold cover of S2:{8,3}.

It can be rectified to give the quasi-Dyck map.

It can be Eppstein tunnelled to give R19.2′.

It can be obtained by truncating S3:{4,8|4}.

Underlying Graph

Its skeleton is Dyck graph.


This regular map has been used as the design for a quilt, sewn from material cut from twelve shirts.

This regular map features in Jarke J. van Wijk's movie Symmetric Tiling of Closed Surfaces: Visualization of Regular Maps, 0:20 seconds from the start. It is shown as a "wireframe diagram", on K4. The wireframe is arranged as the skeleton of the tetrahedron.
