%N Semiprimes q such that q^2-4 and q^2+4 are also semiprimes.

%C From _Robert Israel_, Jun 01 2018: (Start)

%C Since q^2-4 = (q-2)(q+2), for this to be a semiprime requires q-2 and q+2 to be primes.

%C All terms == 3 (mod 6), thus q/3 is an odd prime. (End)

%e 9^2-4 = 77 = 7*11 and 9^2+4 = 85 = 5*13 are semiprimes created by q=9, which adds the semiprime q=9 to the sequence.
