Time resolved EUV photoabsorption spectra of a manganese plasma have been recorded using the dual laser plasma technique. The 43 - 73 eV photon energy range is dominated by the 3p-3d giant resonance and to a lesser extent the 3p-4s resonances in both Mn2+ and Mn3+, recorded at an interplasma time delay of 80 ns and 30 ns respectively. These experimentally observed resonances are well reproduced by synthetic spectra calculated using the Hartree-Fock method. The synthetic spectra allow for absorption from excited states of the Mn2+ and Mn3+ ions.
