%e The first representations different from those in A089296 are

%e a(6)=31: 13^2 = 169 = 31^2 - 29^2 + 7^2 = -31^2 + 29^2 + 17^2

%e a(10)=23: 29^2 = 841 = 23^2 + 19^2 - 7^2

%e a(11)=29: 31^2 = 961 = 29^2 + 13^2 - 7^2

%Y Cf. A088934 representation of n by distinct squares of primes, A089296 representation of (n-th prime)^2 with maximum term minimized.
