Explanation:
I'm not totally convinced but 'mixtilobulado' is translated as 'multifoil' on a number of websites.

Architecture

Having more than five foils, lobes or articulated divisions, e.g., multifoil window or multifoil arch

In French, "foil" means "leaf." The number of foils involved is indicated by a prefix, e.g. trefoil, quatrefoil, cinquefoil, sexfoil, multifoil

neutral  Charles Davis: I don't think there's any term for this: I spent quite a while and gave up. Multifoil is polilobulado, in principle: standard Moorish, but this one is "mixti-" because it's got a concave lobe too; it's different. Invent a term: mixed lobed, mixtilobed...?

  -> As I state above, my suggestion doesn't totally convince me. I've also spent a while researching the term but with no luck. Because this is homework, I thought it would be better if the asker used an accepted term.
