We present newly obtained radial-velocity measurements of the semiregular variable FS Comae, together with available photoelectric data and visual brightness estimates. Both the light variations in the V band and the radial velocities show a similar periodicity of about 55 days, with a phase lag of approximately 40 days between the two. These observations strongly suggest radial pulsation as the mechanism driving the variations. There is evidence that both the photometric period and the spectroscopie period are variable over long time scales.
