(H-T) phase diagram of the antiferro quadrupolar order in TmTe is studied from specific heat measurements under magnetic fields of H ||  and . respectively. When H || , TQ first increases at low fields and decreases above 6 T. The phase diagram is discussed on a molecular field quadrupolar coupling model and crystalline electric field.
