This is an irregular reptile, one in which the smaller tiles are of more than one size, discovered by Karl Scherer. The large tiles in this "irreptile" are scaled by the inverse of the square root of 3, while the smaller tiles are scaled by 1/3. A single gasket is shown through seven iterations, followed by the tenth iteration at larger scale.
