Abstract: In a recent paper, Doran, Greene and Judes considered one parameter families of quintic threefolds with finite symmetry groups. A surprising result was that each of these six families has the same Picard-Fuchs equation associated to the holomorphic $ 3$-form. In this paper we give an easy argument, involving the family of Mirror Quintics, which implies this result. Using a construction due to Shioda, we also relate certain quotients of these one-parameter families to the family of Mirror Quintics. Our constructions generalize to degree $ n$ Calabi-Yau varieties in $ (n-1)$-dimensional projective space.
