Primes of the form 2x^22xy+5y^2 with x and y nonnegative.  T. D. Noe, May 08 2005.
Complement of A040116 relative to A000040.  Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 17 2012
Odd primes of the form a^2 + b^2 such that a^2 == b^2 (mod 3).  Thomas Ordowski and Charles R Greathouse IV, May 20 2015
Yasutoshi Kohmoto observes that nextprime(a(n)) is more frequently congruent to 3 (mod 4) than to 1. This bias can be explained by the possible prime constellations and gaps: To have the same residue mod 4 as a prime in the list, the next prime must be at a gap of 4 or 8 or 12..., but a gap of 4 is impossible because 12k + 5 + 4 is divisible by 3, and gaps >= 12 are very rare for small primes. To have the residue 3 (mod 4) the next prime can be at a gap of 2 or 6 with no a priori divisibility property. However, this bias tends to disappear as the primes (and average prime gaps) grow bigger: for primes < 10^5, the ratio is about 35% vs 65% (as the above simple explanation suggests), but considering primes up to 10^8 yields a ratio of about 40% vs 60%. It can be expected that the ratio asymptotically tends to 1:1.  M. F. Hasler, Sep 01 2017
