In spin-ice research, small variations in structure or interactions drive a multitude of different behaviors, yet the collection of known materials relies heavily on the 227'' pyrochlore structure. Here, we present thermodynamic, structural, and inelastic-neutron-scattering data on a spin-ice material, ${\mathrm{MgEr}}_{2}{\mathrm{Se}}_{4}$, which contributes to the relatively underexplored family of rare-earth spinel chalcogenides. X-ray and neutron diffraction confirm a normal spinel…
