One of the definitions of A035961 gives an easy way
to compute its generating function.

In mathematica language, that could be :

		1/Product[ (1 - Switch[Mod[k, 15],0,0,7,0,8,0,_, x^k]),

which confirms 225.  It may very well be that those two
sequences are really different.  What about constructing the
next term of yours ?  Once they have started to differ,
partition sequences can diverge very quickly.

One brute force way to construct a representation of those 225
is to build all partitions of 18 (I can send you a mathematica
file with them if you want) and then select those with a part
in {7,8,15}.

Maybe a slight variation of your definition could eliminate one
term so that they agree on this term. But I really doubt they are
the same.
