Ironically enough, I've skimmed over your swirlprisms page before, but since most of them were non-convex, I wrongly assumed that they were all non-convex, so for a long time I've been thinking about searching for CRFs (convex) that show swirlprism symmetry. Eventually, I found this one, and it turned out to be one of the convex entries on your page. :lol: So what goes around, comes around. :mrgreen:

Now, I also realized that the same diminishing can be applied to x5o3x3o to produce something with swirlprism symmetry; it is basically a Stott expansion of Spidrox, and has rings of alternating decagonal prisms and parabidiminished x5o3x's. Not sure if it's scaliform, though; is this one also known? (I'm pretty sure it should be, but just in case. :P )

I haven't looked at this one yet, for a minute there I was thinking it would be scaliform, but I now suspect it has two types of verfs.
