We construct a new subfactor planar algebra, and as a corollary a new subfactor, with the ‘extended Haagerup’ principal graph pair. This completes the classification of irreducible amenable subfactors with index in the range ( $$ {4},{3} + \sqrt {{3}} $$ ), which was initiated by Haagerup in 1993. We prove that the subfactor planar algebra with these principal graphs is unique. We give a skein-theoretic description, and a description as a subalgebra generated by a certain element in the graph planar algebra of its principal graph. In the skein-theoretic description there is an explicit algorithm for evaluating closed diagrams. This evaluation algorithm is unusual because intermediate steps may increase the number of generators in a diagram. This is the published version ofarXiv:0909.4099 [math.OA].
