I will describe the abstract commensurability classification within a class of hyperbolic right-angled Coxeter groups. I will explain the relationship between these groups and a related class of geometric amalgams of surface groups, and I will highlight the differences between the quasi-isometry classification and abstract commensurability classification in this setting. This is joint work with Pallavi Dani and Anne Thomas.
