How about "16 quantiles".  (I can honestly say that if I saw the actual word
describing "16 quantiles", I am sure I would not recognize it and would have
to look it up.)

I am trying to find the name of quintiles.  When the population was divided
into four groups according to its distribution, we call them quartiles; when
divided into equally eight groups, we call them octiles; when divided into
16 groups, what is the name for these quantiles?  

Thanks,
