Description

We have reported the accurate two-dimensional spectral classifications obtained with the expert code, MKCLASS, for the first set of Kepler region spectra from LAMOST (Gray et al. 2016). Here we update how these classifications have been used since for science. In particular, we note how they have led to four confirmed lambda Bootis-type stars with pulsation in both p- and g-modes. These have excellent potential in helping solve the lambda-Bootis star enigma. We also give preliminary analysis of the additional 97,641 LAMOST-Kepler spectra observed in 2015.
