#### Abstract

We define non–ordinary instanton bundles on Fano threefolds $X$ extending the notion of (ordinary) instanton bundles introduced in [**14**]. We determine a lower bound for the quantum number of a non–ordinary instanton bundle, i.e. the degree of its second Chern class, showing the existence of such bundles for each admissible value of the quantum number when $i_X \geq 2$ or $i_X = 1$ and $\mathrm{rk} \: \operatorname{Pic}(X) = 1$. In these cases we deal with the component inside the moduli spaces of simple bundles containing the vector bundles we construct and we study their restriction to lines. Finally we give a monadic description of non–ordinary instanton bundles on $\mathbb{P}^3$ and the smooth quadric studying their loci of jumping lines, when of the expected codimension.
