We performed a powder neutron diffraction experiment on Ho1-xTbxB2C2 (x = 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8) to compare the magnetic properties of HoB2C2 and TbB2C2. It is found that the magnetic satellite peaks described as k = [1 ± δ1, ±δ1, ±δ2] get larger even in the (antiferromagnetic + antiferroquadrupolar) phase for x = 0.2, 0.4 and 0.6. And a satellite peak around 000 newly emerges for x = 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8.
