Looks like a compound of 6 tetrahedra (tet), and indeed in type A vertices and edges both coincide by six, {6/2} coincide by three. In type B edges coincide by 6, vertices by 3, and pairs of {3} coincide with pairs of {6/2} each. In type C edges and {3} coincide by 6, vertices by 3. In type D vertices coincide by 3, edges by 6, and 4 triangles each coincide with one {6/2}.
