The spectrum of Xe IX has been observed using a fast capillary discharge with inductive storage as a light source and the normal incidence 6.65m spectrograph at Troitsk. This follows extended observations of vacuum spark spectra of Sb VI, Te VII and I VIII at Troitsk and at Meudon. Theoretical studies of [MATH] ([MATH]) configurations by means of the Cowan codes and by generalized-least-squares fits along the Pd I sequence lead to classify 82 lines as 5-5 transitions of Xe IX.
