In geometry, the small icosihemidodecahedron (or small icosahemidodecahedron) is a uniform star polyhedron, indexed as U49. Its vertex figure alternates two regular triangles and decagons as a crossed quadrilateral.

It is given a Wythoff symbol, 3/2 3 | 5, but that construction represents a double covering of this model.

It is a hemipolyhedron with its six decagonal faces passing through the model center.

Related polyhedra[edit]

It shares its edge arrangement with the icosidodecahedron (its convex hull, having the triangular faces in common), and with the small dodecahemidodecahedron (having the decagonal faces in common).
