The **retrograde pentagonal cuploid**, also called the **retrograde pentagonal semicupola** or **rapescu**, is an orbiform polyhedron. It consists of 5 triangles, 5 squares, and 1 pentagon. It is a cuploid based on the pentagon seen as {5/4}, with a pseudo {10/4} base.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

A retrograde pentagonal cuploid of edge length 1 has vertices given by the following coordinates:

## Related polyhedra[edit | edit source]

The retrograde pentagonal cuploid can be edge-inscribed into the small ditrigonary icosidodecahedron; it uses triangles and pentagons of the great ditrigonary icosidodecahedron as well as squares of the rhombihedron, the inscribed compound of 5 cubes.
