    Excited states in Mo107, populated in spontaneous fission of Cm248, were studied by use of the eurogam2 multidetector array. Spins and parities of the ground state and the 66.0-, 152.1-, and 458.5-keV excited levels, reported previously, were changed based on conversion-coefficient and angular-correlation measurements. Octupole deformation reported previously in Mo107 is dismissed, and we explain the near-yrast structure of Mo107 in terms of rotational bands built on the 5/2+[413], 3/2+[411], and 7/2-[523] orbitals. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
