Abstract. The recently discovered new class of sdB pulsators (sdBV) offers a powerful possibility for the investigation of their interior and thus their evolutionary history. The first step towards applying asteroseismologic tools is the identification of pulsation modes. The best target for such an investigation is PG 1605+072 because of its outstanding properties among the sdBVs: it is the brightest object (B = 13 mag), it has the longest periods (~ 500 s) and the largest variations (0.2 mag in the optical) as well as the richest pulsation spectrum with more than 50 modes (see Kilkenny et al. 1999). The rather rapid rotation (v sin i = 39 km/s, Heber et al. 1999) complicates the interpretation of the pulsation spectrum due to non-linear mode splitting.
