We remark that the classification up to isomorphism is already contained in the work of M¨uhlherr and Weidmann on reflection rigidity and reflection independance in large type (what they call “skew-angled”) Coxeter groups.
Automorphisms and abstract commensurators of 2-dimensional Artin groups
Recently, M¨uhlherr and Weidmann have proved results on reflection rigidity and reflection independance in the wider class of large type (LT) Coxeter groups which give the same solution to the classification problem as given by Theorem 4 above.
