COMMENTS

From Bernard Schott, Feb 21 2020: (Start)

There exist 112 polyiamonds without holes that have from 1 to 8 cells (A070765), but only one of these polyiamonds, corresponding to a(7)= 1 cannot tile the plane. This polyiamond is called V-shaped heptiamond (see proof in Martin Gardner's link in German).
