%C See the comments in A161644.

%C It appears that a(n) is also the number of V-toothpicks or Y-toothpicks added at the n-th stage in a toothpick structure on hexagonal net, starting with a single Y-toothpick in stage 1 and adding only V-toothpicks in stages >=2 (see A161206, A160120, A182633). - _Omar E. Pol_, Dec 07 2010
