The 3d34p, 3d35p and 3d24s4p odd configurations of the V II spectrum have been reanalysed and three 3d24s4p triplets are assigned higher energies than previously proposed. We have determined the fine structure parameters, the largest and next largest eigenvector percentages of levels, their calculated Landé gJ-factors and predicted positions for missing experimental levels up to 100,000 cm-1 for the 3d24s4p configuration. Furthermore for the first time a hyperfine structure (HFS) parametric treatment, involving levels of these two configurations has been carried out. The deduced single-electron HFS parameter values are successfully checked with those obtained by means of ab initio calculations.
