High-spin states in Nd-136 were populated via the Mo-100(Ar-40, 4n) reaction at beam energies of 176 and 182 MeV, and resulting gamma-rays were detected using the GAMMASPHERE spectrometer. Analysis of the data has revealed the existence of an excited superdeformed (SD) band in Nd-136. Th, yrast SD band in Nd-136 has been extended by the addition of four (possibly five) transitions at high frequency. The new band displays the remarkable property of having transition energies identical (to within +/- 1 keV) to those of the half-points of the yrast SD band of Nd-136. Possible explanations in terms of cranked Woods-Saxon single-particle calculations are discussed.
