The JYFL gas-filled recoil separator RITU, combined with detector arrays and a SACRED magnetic solenoid spectrometer, has been successfully employed in recoil-decay-tagging (RDT) experiments in order to probe structures of very neutron-deficient heavy nuclei. The present contribution focuses on the light region where the new data extend the systematics of shape-coexisting yrast states towards the proton dripline. Similarities between band structures and their relation to possible multi-particle multi-hole intruder excitations will be discussed.
