By specific heat measurements of Dy0.9Gd0.1B 2C2, we found a new phase boundary in the antiferroquadrupolar (AFQ) ordered phase with H||[110]. It is supposed that the divided AFQ phases differ in arrangements of Dy moments induced by magnetic fields, since there are four possible moment directions in relation to field direction on the complicated AFQ structure.
