In this paper, we give an updated overview of the observed characteristics of g-mode pulsations in slowly pulsating B stars. These characteristics are based on the combined results of linear nonadiabatic analysis of the oscillations and a photometric and spectroscopic mode identification for a sample of 13 members. For 4 stars, at least one mode is stable in all the considered theoretical models.
