We perform a thorough analysis of the spectral statistics of experimental molecular resonances, of bosonic erbium 166Er and 168Er isotopes, produced as a function of magnetic field(B) by Frisch et al. (Nature, 507 (2014) 475), utilizing some recently derived surmises which interpolate between Poisson and GOE and without unfolding. Supplementing this with an analysis using unfolded spectrum, it is shown that the resonances are close to semi-Poisson distribution. There is an earlier claim of missing resonances by Molina et al. (Phys. Rev. E, 92 (2015) 042906). These two interpretations can be tested by more precise measurements in future experiments.
