COMMENTS

A bilaterally symmetric hexagonal partition is one whose parts are consecutive integers, of which all have multiplicity 2 except the largest part, which may have any multiplicity (including 1).
This is a restriction of the concept of hexagonal partition presented in A321441. The nomenclature is suggested by presenting such partitions as hexagonal patches of the triangular lattice A2.

EXAMPLE

Here are the derivations of the terms up through n = 10. Partitions are abbreviated as strings of digits.
n = 0: (empty partition)
n = 1: 1
n = 2: 11, 2
n = 3: 111, 3
n = 4: 1111, 112, 22, 4
n = 5: 11111, 5
n = 6: 111111, 1122, 222, 33, 6
n = 7: 1111111, 223, 7
n = 8: 11111111, 11222, 2222, 44, 8
n = 9: 111111111, 11223, 333, 9
n = 10: 1111111111, 112222, 22222, 2233, 334, 55, (10)
