Okay folks, here is some definitive proof that it is 44. This will be a long post.

Label the intersections in order, so the upper left corner is A, the top middle is B, the upper right is C, the upper left middle is D and so on. Then, I will list all of the possible triangles, by size, and try by letter.

FDG
BDG
BEG
BEC
CEH
GEH
FIG
GIL
LIK
KIF
GJL
LJM
MJH
HJG (16 small triangles)
AFG
ABG
FAB
FGB
BGH
BCH
GBC
GHC
FKL
FGL
KFG
KLG
GLM
GHM
LGH
LMH (16 medium-small triangles, total now of 32.)
AGK
KGM
MGC
CGA
BFL
BHL
FBH
FLH (8 medium large triangles, total of 40)
AKM
KMC
MCA
CAK (4 large triangles, total of 44)

Please don't try to dispute this, if you think you find a different triangle, look at the list again, and see if it's just named differently.

For pity's sake, bib, don't prolong this. 44, or, maybe 42 if Doug Adams is involved.

Nope I count 48.
The large diamond in the middle has a total of 12 triangles of different sizes,(4 large triangles, each containing 4 of the smaller triangles, plus 8 small triangles.)
Now, if you divide the pic into 4 parts, you'll get four squares with a cross inside. Each square has 8 triangles, times 4 squares is 32.
The large square surrounding the picture contains 4 large triangles.
So, yes, the answer is 48.
