Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A319921 Underline the central digit of all terms: the underlined digits reconstruct the starting sequence. This is also true if one translates the sequence in French and underlines the central letter of each word: the underlined letters spell the (French) sequence again. This is the lexicographically earliest sequence of distinct terms. 2

COMMENTS

By construction, all integers have here an odd number of digits and an odd number of letters in their French translation.

EXAMPLE

The sequence starts with 331, 233, 10177, 224, 10314, and the central (underlined) digits are 3,3,1,2,3,... which are precisely the digits starting the sequence itself; now the successive 5 unique central letters of the above 5 French terms are T, R, O, I, S and this spells the beginning of TROIS CENT TRENTE ET UN, the term a(1).

The first term diverging from A319718 is a(21) = [TROISC(E)NTDEUX, 302] as a(21) is the smallest integer > a(16) = [DEUXC(E)NTSIX, 206], both having a central (underlined) letter E.
