COMMENTS

It appears that the n such that a(n) divides n-1 is the set of primes of the form x^2+23y^2 (A033217). The discriminant of the characteristic polynomial of the Perrin sequence is -23. - T. D. Noe, Feb 23 2007

REFERENCES

Analogy to A001175, Pisano periods (or Pisano numbers): period of Fibonacci numbers mod n AND to A046738 for Perrin sequence, where a(n)=a(n-2)+a(n-3)
