We report a possible charge ordering model of triangular mixed valence material YbFe2O4. It was found that a crystal synthesized with high stoichiometry on iron vacancy shows new and simple extinction rule in the superlattice reflections. The Laue class of the diffraction signal is expressed as 2/m. With the consideration of the charge neutrality and the superlattice signal of (1/3 1/3 0), we derived 5 possible charge ordering models of this material.
