COMMENTS

Number of 5polyominoes with n pentagons. A kpolyomino is a nonoverlapping union of n regular unit kgons.
Unlike A051738, these are not anchored polypents but simple polypents.  George Sicherman, Mar 06 2006
Polypents (or 5polyominoes in Koch and Kurz's terminology) can have holes and this enumeration includes polypents with holes.  George Sicherman, Dec 06 2007

EXAMPLE

a(3)=2 because there are 2 geometrically distinct ways to join 3 regular pentagons edge to edge.
