In the terminology of All the King's Men the 'degenerate' bent riders that double their stride after the first step are called slip pieces. (While the normal riders with a two-square stride are called skip pieces, and those that half their stride ski pieces.) So the Spotted Gryphon would be a Slip Griffon.
