I had also discovered this plain variation of a Sonobe unit in 1998. Here's
a 90 unit construction with it:

That's the best color distribution you can have in a five-color scheme.
You could call it a five-way symmetry. I have an even color distribution
chart for the  Platonic Solids published in many of my modular origami
books. But I uploaded the chart here as well if there's any interest.
