We show that the selected area diffraction patterns presented in a recent paper (T. Liu et al. Sci. Rep. 2015 5, 15331) do not prove the existence of a new hexagonal phase in martensitic steels. They can be actually simulated by twin effects. 
A new nanoscale metastable iron phase in carbon steels
TLDR
An intensive TEM investigation revealed that extra diffraction spots observed by transmission electron microscopy are in fact attributed to the metastable ω phase in particle-like morphology with an overall size of several or dozens of nanometres.
