A total number of 422 frequencies were extracted from the light curve using standard prewhitening techniques. This number of frequencies was obtained by considering a spectral significance limit of sig=10 using the software package SigSpec. Our analysis of the oscillation frequency spectrum reveals a spacing periodicity around 52muHz. Although modes considered here are not in the asymptotic regime, a comparison with stellar models confirms that this signature may stem from a quasi-periodic pattern similar to the so-called large separation in solar-like stars. Description: We have used the program package SigSpec (Reegen 2007A&A...467.1353R). We performed iterations until the limit of sig=10.0 for spectral significance (not sig=5.0 as used as default in SigSpec) because the corresponding S/N values in our data (as determined later using Period04 on the residuals provided by SigSpec) were much lower than expected.

Note (1): As defined by Reegen, 2007A&A...467.1353R. Note (2): Calculated using Period04 (Lenz & Breger 2005, CoAst 146, 5) on the residuals provided by SigSpec. Each S/N value was calculated on a box of width=5c/d centred in the corresponding peak, as usual in a number of papers of Breger et al. Note (3): sigma of the residuals before extracting the peak "Seq" Note (4): Determined using the formulae of Montgomery & O'Donoghue (1999, DSSN 13, 28).
