COMMENTS
Natural size measure lambda terms as follows: all symbols are assigned size 1, namely applications, abstractions, successor symbols in de Bruijn indices and 0 symbol in de Bruijn indices (i.e., a de Bruijn index n is assigned size n+1).
Here we count the closed terms of natural size n, where "closed" means that there is no free index (no free bound variable).

FORMULA
L(0,m) = 0.
L(n+1,m) = (Sum_{k=0..n} L(k,m)*L(n-k,m)) + L(n,m+1) + [m >= n+1], where [p(n,m)] = 1 if p(n,m) is true and [p(n,m)] = 0 if p(n,m) is false then one considers the sequence (L(n,0)).
MATHEMATICA
L[0, _] = 0; L[n_, m_] := L[n, m] = Sum[L[k, m]*L[n-k-1, m], {k, 0, n-1}] + L[n-1, m+1] + Boole[m >= n];
a[n_] := L[n, 0];
