They say that there are only two forms of participle in English.
Participle I - doing
Participle II - done

What about these?

Having done, having being doing?

What category do they fall into?

    Having done is a derivative form of the participle often referred to as the perfect participle.

    As regards 'having being doing', I would call it 'the ungrammatical participle' or the 'nonexistent participle. :D

    Others may disagree, but I would place this perfect continuous participle in the category of 'questionable/dubious participles' :) There is too much grammar in it...
