Spectra of highly charged Mo ions generated in a laser-produced plasma were observed from 10 to 190 Å with a 3 m grazing- incidence spectrograph. Line identifications in MoXXX– XXXII were made with the help of relativistic Hartree-Fock calculations. In MoXXXI (Mg-like) the 3s21S0–3s 3p1P1, resonance line was found to be at 115.944 Å. In MoXXXII (Na-like) the 3s2S½–3p2P3/2, ½, resonance lines are at 127.814 and 176.62 Å These values support the recent identifications of these lines in the Princeton ST tokamak by Hinnov. The density-sensitive 3p2P3/2–3d2D5/2 transition in MoXXXII is at 126.937 Å. At shorter wavelengths, the 3s–4p transitions of MoXXXII are at 14.384 and 14.565 Å.
