The long-time photometric surveys in a few young open clusters allowed to identify the light variability in stars located on the HR diagram between the well defined δ Scuti variables and Slowly Pulsating B-type stars. Several objects of this type were suggested also from the analysis of the Kepler data. Assuming the pulsational origin of this variability, we try to explain the observed frequencies with pulsational models involving rotation and/or modification of the mean opacity profile.
