Acronym ... Name hyperbolic [(33,4)4] tiling Vertex figure [(33,4)4] Confer related hyperbolic polytopes: pex-o3o4o3*a   pac-o3o4x3*a   o3o4x3*a   general polytopal classes: partial Stott expansions

Although this tiling is uniform, it neither has a triangular fundamental domain, nor directly relates to those tilings with Coxeter domains.

This tiling could be obtained by a 2 step partial Stott contraction from o3o4x3*a: first color the triangles of that tiling in 4 colors, say yellow, brown, black, and green. Then apply a tripesic contraction, which would contract all yellow triangles into just vertices: this would result in pac-o3o4x3*a. Then apply a second such contraction onto that, reducing the brown triangles into points too. This would be the tiling under consideration. – One even could apply this again with respect to the black triangles. Then only the green triangles would be left, providing pex-o3o4o3*a. (A fourth application then clearly would reduce the complete tiling into a single point.)
