COMMENTS

The graphs are exactly 2connected, not at least 2connected. The graphs were enumerated using plantri (by B.D. McKay & G. Brinkmann) for the purpose of finding compound perfect squared squares. If all graphs with n edges are generated then all compound squares in order n1 can be obtained from them. Graphs with minimum degree 3 are also called homeomorphically irreducible.
