Tetraming Oddities

A tetraming is a plane figure formed by joining four cells in the equilateral triangular grid along edges or at corners or both. There are 72 tetramings, independent of reflection.

An oddity is a figure with binary symmetry formed by an odd number of copies of a polyform. Here are the minimal known tetraming oddities with various symmetries. Please write if you find a smaller solution or solve an unsolved case.
