Abstract: Let be an odd prime, and let be a polynomial algebra over the Steenrod algebra with generators in dimensions prime to . To such an algebra is associated a -adic pseudoreflection group , and we assume that is of order prime to and irreducible. Adjoin to a one-dimensional element , and give an action of the Steenrod algebra by and for an even dimensional element . We show that the subalgebra of elements of consisting of elements of degree greater than one is realized uniquely, up to homotopy, as the cohomology of a -complete space. This space can be thought of as a cross between spaces studied by Aguade, Broto, and Notbohm, and the Clark-Ewing examples, further studied by Dwyer, Miller, and Wilkerson.
