Almosymmetric is a period-2 oscillator that was found in 1971.[1][2] It is closely related to the phoenix 1 and barberpole oscillators, and can be seen as the majority of a phoenix 1 being supported by one half of quad.

Commonness

Main article: List of common oscillators

This oscillator is one of very few examples of periodic objects with a population of 20 or lower which have yet to occur naturally from soup.

Glider synthesis

This oscillator is one of very few examples of oscillators with a population of 20 or lower which do not yet have a known glider synthesis.
