COMMENTS

This sequence and A229037 and A235265 are winners in the contest held at the 2014 AMS/MAA Joint Mathematics Meetings.  T. D. Noe, Jan 20 2014
Carmichael's theorem implies that 8 and 144 are the only terms of this sequence.
First two terms of A061899, A111687, A172150, A212703, and A231851.  Omar E. Pol, Jan 21 2014
Saha and Karthik conjectured (without reference to Carmichael's theorem) that the only positive integers k for which A001175(k^2) = A001175(k) are 6 and 12. (A000045(6) = 8 and A000045(12) = 144.)  L. Edson Jeffery, Feb 13 2014
Y. Bugeaud, M. Mignotte, and S. Siksek proved that 8 and 144 are the only nontrivial perfect power Fibonacci numbers.  Robert C. Lyons, Dec 23, 2015

EXAMPLE

The Fibonacci number 8 is in the sequence because 8=2*2*2, and 2 is a Fibonacci number that is not equal to 8. The Fibonacci number 144 is in the sequence because 144=3*3*2*2*2*2, and both 2 and 3 are Fibonacci numbers that are not equal to 144.
