A neutron diffraction study was performed on a single crystal of a new compound YFe2O4 below its Néel point. In a slightly oxygen deficient crystal, the elastic magnetic scattering takes the form of Bragg line along the c axis at ( n 3, n 3, l) (n ≠ 3m) in the hexagonal lattice. This fact indicates the two-dimensional long range order of a commensurate sinusoidal spin structure.
