The magnetic properties of the ternary intermetallic RRhGe (R = Dy and Tm) were investigated by magnetic and neutron diffraction measurements. These compounds crystallize in a TiNiSi-type orthorhombic structure and are antiferromagnets with the Néel temperature 20 K (R = Dy) and 6.2 K (R = Tm). The neutron diffraction data reveal that the magnetic order in TmRhGe is collinear with the magnetic unit doubled along the b-axis respective to the crystal one.
