COMMENTS
The figures are formed by connecting n regular triangles by edges.
"Turning over not allowed" means that axial symmetric polyiamonds are counted separately, thus a(4) = 4 and a(5) = 6 while A000577(4) = 3 and A000577(5) = 4, cf. examples. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 12 2017

EXAMPLE
From M. F. Hasler, Nov 12 2017: (Start)
Putting dots for the approximate center of the regular triangles (alternatively flipped up and down for neighboring dots), we have:
a(4) = #{ .... , .:. , ..: , :.. } = 4, while ..: and :.. are considered equivalent and not counted twice in A000577(4) = 3.
a(5) = #{ ..... , ...: , :... , ..:. , .:.. , :.: } = 6, and again the 2nd & 3rd and 4th & 5th are considered equivalent and not counted twice in A000577(5) = 4. (End)
