### Can cyclic and simplicial objects be related in a similar way to how the species of linear orders is the derivative of the species of cyclic orders?

The derivative of a combinatorial species $S: core(FinSet) \to core(FinSet)$ is given by $S^\prime [N] = S[N\sqcup 1]$. Intuitively, an $S^\prime$-structure is built by introducing a "hole" ...
