The name of this part

 
Part No: 970c00pb078  Name: Hips and Legs with White Western Indians Fringe and Red and Blue Diamonds Pattern
* 
970c00pb078 Hips and Legs with White Western Indians Fringe and Red and Blue Diamonds Pattern
Parts: Minifigure, Legs Assembly

says that it contains (red and blue) triangles. There are no triangles on this
pattern, only rhombuses (a quadrilateral). I don't know if "rhombus" is a
word that BrickLink allows to be used in names, but something better than "triangle"
should be picked. It's very confusing.

I would put "diamonds".

Whew. I was afraid this was going to turn into an argument over the proper plural
of rhombus.

Per the Merriam-Webster Dictionary ( https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/rhombus
), the plural form of "rhombus" can be either "rhombuses" or "rhombi". ­čÖé

Not me! I didn't submit anything. One of the admins is on the ball, though!
