Abstract: We present the preliminary results of the exploration of pulsating B stars observed with the CoRoT space mission. The previously known group of Slowly Pulsating B stars gains a substantial amount of new candidates, offering the opportunity to test stellar models beyond individual cases. Besides these well-defined stars, the analysis of other B star candidate pulsators hints towards the presence of different variability behaviour, co-existing in the same space in terms of the timescale of the variations and location in the (Teff, logg) diagram.
