A261958 Start with a single square for n=0; for the odd n-th generation add a square at each expandable vertex of the squares of the (n-1)-th generation (this is the "vertex to vertex" version); for the even n-th generation use the "side to vertex" version; a(n) is the number of squares added in the n-th generation. 1

COMMENTS
See a comment on V-V and V-S at A249246.
The overlap rules for the expansion are: (i) overlap within generation is allowed. (ii) overlap of different generations is prohibited.
There are a total of 16 combinations as shown in the table below:
+-------------------------------------------------------+
| Even n-th version V-V S-V V-S S-S |
+-------------------------------------------------------+
| Odd n-th version |
| V-V A008574 a(n) ... ... |
| S-V ... A008574 A008574 ... |
| V-S ... A008574 A008574 ... |
| S-S ... ... ... A008574 |
+-------------------------------------------------------+
Note: V-V = vertex to vertex, S-V = side to vertex,
V-S = vertex to side, S-S = side to side.

FORMULA
Conjectures from Colin Barker, Sep 10 2015: (Start)
a(n) = a(n-2)+a(n-8)-a(n-10) for n>10.
G.f.: (x^10+4*x^9+3*x^8+4*x^7+4*x^6+16*x^5+12*x^4+12*x^3+11*x^2+4*x+1) / ((x-1)^2*(x+1)^2*(x^2+1)*(x^4+1)).
