Asymptotic estimates for the number of partitions of the integer n into summandschosen from an arithmetic progression have been derived by several authors. In this note we investigate a natural extension which has not previously appeared in the literature. We study the asymptotic behaviour of the numbers p\alpha(n) and q\alpha(n). The number of partitions of n into summands and distinct summands, respectively, chosen from the sequence [m\alpha],m = 1,2,... where \alpha > 1 is an irrational number and [x] denotes the largest integer \leq x. If \gamma = \alpha-[\alpha] then for almost all \gamma in (0,1) in the Lesbesgue sense we obtain asymptotic formulae for p\alpha(n) and q\alpha(n).
