Magnetic and crystallographic properties of FeMnP0.75Si0.25 in the hexagonal Fe2P-type structure have been investigated by X-ray powder diffraction, neutron powder diffraction and magnetic measurements. The room temperature diffractograms reveal co-existence of two distinct structural phases in the samples with small, but significant, differences only in the unit cell dimensions. The volume ratio between the two phases is governed by the annealing conditions. One of the phases orders ferromagnetically (T-C=250 K) and the other in an incommensurate antiferromagnetic structure at low temperatures (q(x) = 0.363(1), T-N=150 K).
