Abstract: δ Scuti stars that have been observed intensely by the Delta Scuti Network and other campaigns exhibit fewer modes than predicted in the observed frequency range. In addition, some modes are difficult to match by the most likely observable l = 0, 1, and 2 modes, especially considering available spectroscopic mode identifications. Here we examine frequency predictions for stellar models for FG Vir and 4 Cvn with extensive core mixing, well beyod the plausible limits of such mixing from consecutive core overshooting. We find that mixing has the potential to substantially improve frequency agreement, and deserves further investigation.
