COMMENTS

A basic heuristic suggests that this sequence is infinite with about k * log_phi(n) members below n.

Indices of associated Fibonacci numbers are 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 17, 34, 46, 83, 109, 113, 158, 181, 203, 350, 490, 491, 565, 1024, 1114, 2800, 4222, 4847, 4961, 11507, 12554, ...
