  Abstract We report detailed thermal expansion and magnetostriction experiments on GdCoIn5 and GdRh(In1−xCdx )5

(x = 0 and 0.025) single-crystal samples that show a sudden change in the dilation at a field B for temperatures

below the Néel transition temperature TN . We present a first-principles model including crystal-field effects,

dipolar and exchange interactions, and the dependence of the latter with lattice distortions in order to fully

account for the magnetostriction and magnetic susceptibility data. The mean-field solution of the model shows

that a transition between metastable states occurs at the field B. It also indicates that two degenerate phases

should coexist at temperatures below TN , which may explain the lack of observation, in high-resolution

x-ray experiments, of an orthorhombic distortion at the Néel transition, even though the experimentally

determined magnetic structure breaks the tetragonal symmetry and the magnetoelastic coupling from our model

is significant. These conclusions could be extended to other tetragonal Gd-based compounds that present the

same phenomenology.
