What are common structural features of oxides (P4O6 and P4O5) of phosphorous?

Phosphorous is a pentavalent element hence show +3 and +5 oxidation state (d orbital presence).it form two oxide P2O3 (+3) and P2O5 (+5). These oxide of phosphorus exist as dimer in form of P4O6 (+3) and P4O5
Common feature of P4O6 and P4O10 
(1) Both oxides have closed cage like structure.
(2) Both oxides contain six (P-O-P) Bond.
(3) Both oxide have 4 six membered ring.
(4) Both are the anhydride of their respective acids.
(5) Both are Non planer
