Mosquito 5 is a breeder and 71-cell quadratic growth pattern that was found by Nick Gotts on October 21, 1998. At the time of its discovery, it was the smallest known pattern exhibiting superlinear growth (passing the former record holder mosquito 4), but it has since been superceded by several patterns including teeth, metacatacryst, Gotts dots, and 26-cell quadratic growth.[1]
