The **pentagonal cupolic prism**, or **pecupe**, is a CRF segmentochoron (designated K-4.117 on Richard Klitzing's list). It consiss of 2 pentagonal cupolas, 5 triangular prisms, 5 cubes, 1 pentagonal prism, and 1 decagonal prism.

As the name suggests, it is a prism based on the pentagonal cupola. As such, it is a segmentochoron between two pentagonal cupolas. It can also be viewed as a segmentochoron between a decagonal prism and a pentagonal prism.

It can be obtained as a segment of the small rhombicosidodecahedral prism.
