Aside from those I can only gather _hioides_ (that's a bone), and
the surname _Vieytes_. But I'm not sure you can call those triphthongs;
if so, what would English _way_ be? (In fact, that would be a discussion
about whether Spanish [j] and [w] are mere allophones of [i] and [u],
or separate phonemes as in English).
