In this work we have identified and studied the decay of two new microsecond isomers 19/2- and 23/2+ in 131Sb. This neutron-rich nucleus was produced by thermal neutron-induced fission of 241Pu. The detection is based on time correlation between fission fragments selected by the LOHENGRIN spectrometer at ILL (Grenoble) and the $\gamma$-rays or conversion electrons from isomers. These new data on high-spin states complete the level scheme previously obtained from $\beta$-decay. A large fraction of the members of the $\pi g_{7/2} \nu (h_{11/2}^{-1} d_{3/2}^{-1})$ and $\pi g_{7/2} \nu h_{11/2}^{-2}$ multiplets are now known and were compared with a multi-particle shell model calculation.
