COMMENTS

We construct mirror images of numbers by placing a mirror parallel to the baseline at an acute angle and looking at them from the top of the sheet they are written on.
This defines the mirror images by fixing digits 0, 1 and 8, exchanging 2 and 5, reversing the order of the digits and ignoring leading zeros that may result.
Only entries of A080228 are admitted, because 3's, 4's, 6's, 7's and 9's do not have calculator style images.
If this combined operation on n generates an entry in A008578, n is in this sequence here.

EXAMPLE

110 is in the sequence because the mirror is 011 = 11 and prime.
152 is in the sequence because the mirror is 521 = A000040(98), a prime.
31 is not in the sequence because the 3 cannot be mirrored.
115 is in the sequence because the mirror is 211 = A000040(47), a prime.
