Or, primes p such that x^2 - p*y^2 represents -1.
Primes which are not Gaussian primes (meaning not congruent to 3 mod 4).
Every Fibonacci prime (with the exception of F(4) = 3) is in the sequence. If p = 2n+1 is the prime index of the Fibonacci prime, then F(2n+1) = F(n)^2 + F(n+1)^2 is the unique representation of the prime as sum of two squares. - Sven Simon, Nov 30 2003
Except for 2, primes of the form x^2 + 4y^2. See A140633. - T. D. Noe, May 19 2008
Primes p such that for all p > 2, p XOR 2 = p + 2. - Brad Clardy, Oct 25 2011
Greatest prime divisor of r^2 + 1 for some r. - Michel Lagneau, Sep 30 2012
Empirical result: a(n), as a set, compose the prime factors of the family of sequences produced by A005408(j)^2 + A005408(j+k)^2 = (2j+1)^2 + (2j+2k+1)^2, for j >= 0, and a given k >= 1 for each sequence, with the addition of the prime factors of k if not already in a(n). - Richard R. Forberg, Feb 09 2015
Primes such that when r is a primitive root then p-r is also a primitive root. - Emmanuel Vantieghem, Aug 13 2015
Primes of the form (x^2 + y^2)/2. Note that (x^2 + y^2)/2 = ((x+y)/2)^2 + ((x-y)/2)^2 = a^2 + b^2 with x = a + b and y = a - b. More generally, primes of the form (x^2 + y^2) / A001481(n) for every fixed n > 1. - Thomas Ordowski, Jul 03 2016
Numbers n such that ((n-2)!!)^2 == -1 (mod n). - Thomas Ordowski, Jul 25 2016
Primes p such that (p-1)!! == (p-2)!! (mod p). - Thomas Ordowski, Jul 28 2016
The product of 2 different terms (x^2 + y^2)(z^2 + v^2) = (xz + yv)^2 + (xv - yz)^2 is sum of 2 squares (A000404) because (xv - yz)^2 > 0. If x were equal to yz/v then (x^2 + y^2)/(z^2 + v^2) would be equal to ((yz/v)^2 + y^2)/(z^2 + v^2) = y^2/v^2 which is not possible because (x^2 + y^2) and (z^2 + v^2) are prime numbers. For example, (2^2 + 5^2)(4^2 + 9^2) = (2*4 + 5*9)^2 + (2*9 - 5*4)^2. - Jerzy R Borysowicz, Mar 21 2017

EXAMPLE
13 is in the sequence since it is prime and 13 = 4*3 + 1. Also 13 = 2^2 + 3^2. And -1 is a square (mod 13): -1 + 2*13 = 25 = 5^2. Of course, only the first term is congruent to 2 (mod 4). - Michael B. Porter, Jul 04 2016
