Abstract: We prove that if a K3 surface $ X$ admits $ \mathbb{Z}/5\mathbb{Z}$ as a group of symplectic automorphisms, then it actually admits $ \mathcal{D}_5$ as a group of symplectic automorphisms. The orthogonal complement to the $ \mathcal{D}_5$-invariants in the second cohomology group of $ X$ is a rank 16 lattice, $ L$. It is known that $ L$ does not depend on $ X$: we prove that it is isometric to a lattice recently described by R. L. Griess Jr. and C. H. Lam. We also give an elementary construction of $ L$.
