Merge multiple features

Good day,

I have a GDB with features with almost the same name only the last postfix is a underscore and a number (Test_area,  Test_area_1)

I am working an a script that will merge the features with the same name. This is what i have so far:

It works but the feature list is about 50 features long and more important I would like to learn how I can improve this script.

import arcpy
from arcpy import env
import os

# Set the workspace for the ListFeatureClass function
arcpy.env.workspace = r"D:\ GIS \Test.gdb"

outputA = r" D:\ GIS \Output.gdb \ TestA_area "
outputB = r" D:\ GIS \ Output.gdb \ TestB_area "
outputC = r" D:\ GIS \ Output.gdb \ TestC_area "
outputD = r" D:\ GIS \ Output.gdb \ TestD_area "

# Use the ListFeatureClasses function to return a list of all FC.
fclistA = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("TestA_area*","ALL")
fclistB = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("TestB_area*","ALL")
fclistC = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("TestC_area*","ALL")
fclistD = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("TestD_area*","ALL")
arcpy.Merge_management(fclistA, outputA)
arcpy.Merge_management(fclistB, outputB)
arcpy.Merge_management(fclistC, outputC)
arcpy.Merge_management(fclistD, outputD)
