A self-tiling tile set, or "setiset", of order "n" is a set of "n" shapes or pieces, usually planar, each of which can be tiled with smaller replicas of the complete set of "n" shapes. That is, the "n" shapes can be assembled in "n" different ways so as to create larger copies of themselves, where the increase in scale is the same in each case. Figure 1 shows an example for "n" = 4 using distinctly shaped decominoes. The concept can be extended to include pieces of higher dimension. The name setisets was coined by Lee Sallows in 2012, but the problem of finding such sets for "n" = 4 was asked decades previously by C. Dudley Langford, and examples for polyaboloes (discovered by Martin Gardner, Wade E. Philpott and others) and polyominoes (discovered by Maurice J.
) were previously published by Gardner.

Four other members of the battalion (Sergeant Oswald Olson and Privates John Joseph Hallinan, John Milton Howard, and Ernest Samuel
) died in Canada between then and the end of the war, all members of the 207th Battalion at the time. As a result, seven men died during the First World War wearing the cap badge of the 207th (Ottawa-Carleton) Overseas Battalion.
The anamorphic or imperfect fungi are those that seem to lack a sexual stage in their life cycle, and typically reproduce by the process of mitosis in conidia. In some cases, the sexual stage—or teleomorph stage—is later identified, and a teleomorph-anamorph relationship is established between the species. The International Code of Botanical Nomenclature permits the recognition of two (or more) names for one and the same organism, one based on the teleomorph, the other(s) restricted to the anamorph. "Tilachlidiopsis racemosa" (formerly known as "Sclerostilbum septentrionale", described by Alfred
in 1932) was shown to be the anamorphic form of "Dendrocollybia racemosa". The synnemata (reproductive structures made of compact groups of erect conidiophores) produced by "T. racemosa" always grow on the stem of "Dendrocollybia racemosa". The anamorph has an unusually low optimum growth temperature, between , within a larger growth range of . It is thought this is an adaptation that allows the mycelium to grow quickly and enhance its chances of fruiting on agaric mushrooms, which are generally short-lived.
