##### Abstract

Let $G$ be a compact connected simple Lie group. Any principal $G$–bundle over ${S}^{4}$ is classified by an integer $k\in ℤ\cong {\pi }_{3}\left(G\right)$, and we denote the corresponding gauge group by ${\mathsc{G}}_{k}\left(G\right)$. We prove that ${\mathsc{G}}_{k}\left(PU\left(3\right)\right)\simeq {\mathsc{G}}_{\ell }\left(PU\left(3\right)\right)$ if and only if $\left(24,k\right)=\left(24,\ell \right)$, and ${\mathsc{G}}_{k}\left(PSp\left(2\right)\right){\simeq }_{\left(p\right)}{\mathsc{G}}_{\ell }\left(PSp\left(2\right)\right)$ for any prime $p$ if and only if $\left(40,k\right)=\left(40,\ell \right)$, where $\left(m,n\right)$ is the gcd of integers $m,n$.
