A polyhedral map is called $\{p,q\}$-equivelar if each face has $p$ edges and each vertex belongs to $q$ faces. In , it was shown that there exist infinitely many geometrically realizable $\{p, q\}$-equivelar polyhedral maps if $q > p = 4$, $p > q = 4$ or $q-3>p =3$. It was shown in \cite{dn1} that there exist infinitely many $\{4, 4\}$- and $\{3, 6\}$-equivelar polyhedral maps. In \cite{b}, it was shown that $\{5, 5\}$- and $\{6, 6\}$-equivelar polyhedral maps exist. In this note, examples are constructed, to show that infinitely many self dual $\{k, k\}$-equivelar polyhedral maps exist for each $k \geq 5$. Also vertex-minimal non-singular $\{p,p\}$-pattern are constructed for all odd primes $p$.
