Stiscu is an edgefaceting of sidtid, in fact it uses triangles and pentagrams of it and squares of rhom, the inscribed compound of 5 cube.
As a cuploid it has a pseudo bottom face. That one is the withdrawn {10/2} of the corresponding cupola. By that withdrawel the top base becomes a membran, as the central part becomes accessible from the outside at both sides.
As abstract polytope stiscu is isomorphic to rapescu, thereby replacing the (prograde) pentagram by a retrograde pentagon, while pseudo pentagon would become a pseudo pentagram.
