COMMENTS

If we count sublattices as equivalent only if they are related by a rotation, we get A054384 instead of this sequence. If we only allow rotations and reflections that preserve the parent (hexagonal) lattice, we get A003051; the first discrepancy is at n = 42 (see illustration), the second is at n = 49. If both restrictions are applied, i.e., only rotations preserving the parent lattice are allowed, we get A145394. The analog for square lattice is A054346.
Although A003051 has its counterpart A003050 which counts primitive sublattices only, this sequence has no such counterpart sequence because a primitive sublattice can turn to a nonprimitive one via a nonparentlatticepreserving rotation, so the straightforward definition of primitiveness does not work in this case.
