We prepared single crystals in UCo1−xRhxGe and UIr1−xRhxGe systems to establish a complex dU-U-T (dU-U is the shortest interatomic uranium distance and T is temperature) magnetic phase diagram. This recognized a characteristic maximum in magnetic susceptibility at temperature Tmax along the b axis as an important parameter. Three magnetically ordered regions can be distinguished within this scope; first a ferromagnetic region with Curie temperature<Tmax, second a ferromagnetic region with Curie temperature ≈ Tmax and finally an antiferromagnetic region existing on the UIrGe side with Néel temperature<Tmax.
