The magnetic phase transitions in DyMn2Ge2 were studied by neutron diffraction. The (111) antiferromagnetic order reflection due to Mn atoms is observed only above 40 K, and the intermediate superlattice (110)± line is observed in the temperature range between 35 and 40 K. It is concluded that the intermediate temperature phase is a magnetically single phase in which the magnetic stracture is described with a propagation vector k ≈ (0, 0, 0.65).
