For the first time, we show here that three isotopes of the Sm isotopic chain almost overlay with three isotopes of the Yb isotopic chain in terms of experimental observables within the N pi N nu scheme. A recent systematic work by Saygi on reduced transitional probabilities in pseudo-mirror nuclei revealed that nuclei having particle-hole symmetry tend to manifest alike experimental structures. The N pi N nu quantity is an indicator of the symmetry and depends on valence nucleon (or holes) number from the nearest closed shell by considering the subshell closures, which simplifies the systematics of excitation energies and related B(E2; L+ -> (L - 2)(+)) values of excited states in nuclei placed in the different mass regions of nu- clear chart. In the light of available data, the experimental observables in the group of Sm-136-Yb-160, Sm-134-Yb-162 and Sm-132-Yb-164 nuclei have been analyzed in a vertical and horizontal perspectives and the ratio of reduced transition probabilities of the first excited states compared with existing theoretical predictions. The data brought to light that the structure of each group reflects identical yrast bands up to 10(+). (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
