© 2022, The Author(s).The developments in the experimental facilities and analyses techniques have recently lead to the observation of many hadronic states ranging from excitations of conventional hadrons to various exotic states. The baryons with single heavy quark are among these states providing an attractive field of research to get a better understanding of the nonperturbative nature of the strong interaction. Recently, the Belle Collaboration announced observation of the state Λ c(2910) + with a mass 2913.8±5.6±3.8MeV/c2 and width 51.8±20.0±18.8MeV. In the present study, by the mass analyses of different excitations at Λ c channel and their comparison with existing experimental information, we find that the spin-parity of this newly found excited state is JP=12- and it is a 2P state denoting by Λc(12-,2P). We predict its current coupling as well, which can be served as one of the main input parameters to investigate different decays and interactions of this particle. We also determine the mass and current coupling of Λb(12-,2P) as possible bottom counterpart of the new Λ c(2910) + state, which may be in agenda of different experiments in near future.
