A bstractWe study 4D N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 superconformal field theories that arise from the compactification of 6D N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = (2, 0) theories of type DN on a Riemann surface, in the presence of punctures twisted by a ℤ2 outer automorphism. Unlike the untwisted case, the family of SCFTs is in general parametrized, not by ℳg,n, but by a branched cover thereof. The classification of these SCFTs is carried out explicitly in the case of the D4 theory, in terms of three-punctured spheres…
