Spectra from the Rydberg series 1s-np for the principal quantum numbers n greater than or equal to 8 of Cl16+ are observed on the JET tokamak. Individual lines up to n = 15 are resolved. The line intensity of n = 10 is enhanced, relative to the underlying 1/n(3) scaling, due to charge exchange collisions with neutral deuterium in the ground state. The observations are compared with predictions based on available partial charge exchange cross section data. There is generally good agreement, however, some details of the predicted n-shell distribution are different from those observed in the experiment.
