COMMENTS

a(n) = V(r=n,k=n-5), 4th subdiagonal of the triangle of V on page 240.

It appears that V(r=15,k=10) in the Cayley table is an error, so the sequence was intended to be 4, 60, 550, 4004, 25480, 148512, 813960, 4263600, 21573816, 106234700, 511801290, 2421810300, 11289642000, 51967090560, 236635858800... - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2011
