The mass A = 140 products of the 54Fe (315 MeV) + 92Mo reaction were selected by a recoil mass spectrometer and studied in a recoil ‐ delayed γ‐γ coincidence experiment. A new 7 μs isomer was identified in the drip line nucleus 140Dy. Five cascading γ transitions were assigned to the decay of the Iπ = 8 {v9/2[514] ⊗ v7/2+[404]} K isomer via the ground state band transitions. The established structure of 140Dy is discussed with reference to the fine structure in proton decay of 141Ho.
