This compound has rotational freedom. Starting at φ = 0° with a completely coincident overlay of 4 octahedra, rotating 1 octahedron each, thought of as 3fold antiprisms, around a tetrahedral subset of trigonal axes, and thereby passing at φ = 60° at sno.
This is the hemiversion of daso.
For an intermediate state of φ the lateral triangles become coplanar, and thus can be considered as (rotated) 2trianglecompounds. That special case is called hidsit (hexagrammattic disnub tetrahedron). By coincidence, hidsit is nothing but se with 1 oct removed. (J. Bowers further uses idsit (inner ...) for smaller values of φ, resp. odsit (outer ...) for larger values.)
