Abstract: Let $ G$ be a connected semisimple group over $ \mathbb{C}$, whose simple components have type $ \mathsf A$ or $ \mathsf D$. We prove that wonderful $ G$-varieties are classified by means of combinatorial objects called spherical systems. This is a generalization of a known result of Luna for groups of type $ \mathsf A$; thanks to another result of Luna, this implies also the classification of all spherical $ G$-varieties for the groups $ G$ we are considering. For these $ G$ we also prove the smoothness of the embedding of Demazure.
