Galvagni Figures & Reid Figures for Octiamonds

An octiamond is a figure made of eight equilateral triangles joined edge to edge. A Galvagni figure is a figure that can be tiled by a polyform in more than one way—a kind of self-compatibility figure. A Reid figure is a Galvagni figure without holes.

Most of the octiamond Galvagni and Reid figures were found by Dr. Michael Reid of the University of Central Florida.
