We study a rich set of four-dimensional superconformal field theories (SCFTs) with both central charges identical: a=c. These are constructed via the diagonal N=2 or N=1 gauging of the flavor symmetry G of a collection of N=2 Argyres-Douglas theories of type Dp(G), with or without adjoint chiral multiplets, in arXiv:2106.12579 and arXiv:2111.12092. We compute superconformal indices of some theories where the rank of G is low, performing a refined test for unitarity, and further determine the relevant and marginal operator content in detail. We find that most of these theories flow to interacting SCFTs with a=c in the infrared.
