There's an interesting l-wing type pattern - though instead of being based on a two-link x-chain it uses three (and grouped!)...
Quote:
l-wing-like(17) (7)r1c6=r4c6 - r6c4=r6c2 - r45c1=r2c1 - (1)r2c1=r2c45 ; r1c2<>7, r2c45<>7, r1c6<>1

A nice thing about l-wings is that you can spot them as part of an initial scan for colouring/tubot type moves - find an x-chain/colouring chain and see if a strong link on another digit gets you back to the starting house.

Alternatively you can see it as an m-wing with transport...
Quote:
grouped m-wing(17) transport ; (7=1)r1c6 - r2c45=(1-7)r2c1=r45c1 - r6c2=r6c4 ; r2c4<>7, r4c6<>7

Sometimes you just get lucky. In this case it was the first pattern I tried.......

Type 4 UR(12)r13c28 with x-wing overlay(2) gives r1c28<>1 which appears useless.

However if we look at the internal sis we find r1c2=67, r1c8=4 ; r6c2<>7
ls(67)r17c2;
||
(4)r1c8-(4=1)r1c9-(1=7)r1c6-r4c6=(7)r6c4;
