(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A000577 Number of triangular polyominoes (or triangular polyforms, or polyiamonds) with n cells (turning over is allowed, holes are allowed, must be connected along edges).
(Formerly M2374 N0941)
1, 1, 1, 3, 4, 12, 24, 66, 160, 448, 1186, 3334, 9235, 26166, 73983, 211297, 604107, 1736328, 5000593, 14448984, 41835738, 121419260, 353045291, 1028452717, 3000800627, 8769216722, 25661961898, 75195166667, 220605519559, 647943626796 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



If holes are not allowed, we get A070765. - Joseph Myers, Apr 20 2009
