COMMENTS

This sequence and its chiral and achiral versions correspond to Robert A. Russell's similar sequences for rings of fourfold rotational symmetry. The sequence does not count the mononimo or domino, referred to by Redelmeier as degenerate rings, as they are not in fact rings.
The sequence refers to rings with at least twofold (180degree) rotational symmetry, and so includes those with (i) fourfold (90degree) rotational symmetry, and (ii) all symmetries.  John Mason, Jan 19 2023
