The possibility of the existence of four-quark scalar mesons with
charm \tildeD+(cu\overlineud) and
\tildeD0(cd\overlineud) is studied in the framework of
SU(6)cs, a combined symmetry of color and spin, with a binding
potential due to a gluon magnetic interaction. We observe that the
masses of the mesons range from 1.8 GeV to 2.4 GeV and that the mesons
are produced dominantly in the forward region by neutrino
reactions. If the masses of \tildeD were smaller than mD +
mπ, the mesons will be stable and the lifetimes will be the same
order in magnitude with those of D mesons. Thus detection of a dual
structure in mass and lifetime for charmed mesons, and of a decay
\tildeD → D + 2γ with an appreciable (at least a few percent) branching ratio will provide a confirmation of the existence of the four-quark scalar mesons.
