Keywords Stars: HD99458; Stars: chemically peculiar; binaries: eclipsing; Stars: pulsations
Description HD99458 was recently discovered to be a first object of its kind: a short-period eclipsing binary hosts a spotted, chemically peculiar A-type primary star that is a delta Scuti pulsator, and an M-dwarf secondary. These phenomena should not co-exist at the same time. Based on new photometric data we find that the previously published period of the main pulsation mode is a Nyquist alias of the true period (0.036 d, and not 0.052 d) given by the Kepler sampling.
