Two filaments of R2F(1/2(1/14B1)B*) that spiral in to a point. This is the more common usage of "double spiral". The 2-fold rotational symmetry centers around a Misiurewicz point. This particular image is from the west side of Seahorse valley.

A double hook in the east side of Seahorse Valley. Rollo Silver has referred to this type of feature as "double spiral". In this case the 2-fold symmetry centers on an island; each spiral is a single spiral but they form a matched pair.
