Abstract
The following characterization is obtained: THEOREM. Let G be a finite group generated by a conjugacy class D of subgroups of prime order p ^ 5, such that for any choice of distinct A and B in D, the subgroup generated by A and B is isomorphic to Zp x Zp, L2(pm) or SL2(pm), where m depends on A and B. Assume G has no nontrivial solvable normal subgroup. Then G is isomorphic to Spn(q) or Un(q) for some power q of p.
