In geometry, the truncated order-4 pentagonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of t0,1{5,4}.

Uniform colorings[edit]

A half symmetry [1+,4,5] = [5,5] coloring can be constructed with two colors of decagons; this coloring is called a truncated pentapentagonal tiling.

There is only one subgroup of [5,5], [5,5]+, removing all the mirrors; this symmetry can be doubled to 542 symmetry by adding a bisecting mirror.
