Hi,
It seems that you're using an old version of Phaser that predates the implementation of corrections for translation NCS (tNCS). When tNCS is not accounted for, Phaser has been known to give incorrect solutions. In particular, the TFZ score for the second molecule is generally rather misleading, because any molecule in the same orientation related by the NCS translation will account for the modulation of the data introduced by the interference between the contributions of the two copies; even if the solution is wrong, accounting for the modulation explains a lot of the features of the data.
So I would suggest installing the recent Phenix release and running a job looking for two copies of the monomer, to see if you get the same solution or a different one. Another advantage is that this version of Phaser will give you intensity statistics corrected for the statistical effects of tNCS, which can help to detect twinning in the presence of tNCS.
Best wishes,
Randy Read

The data can be scaled in P321, p3221,p3121 with similar rsym (6 (54). Pointless gave me Spacegroups as P3221 or P3121 as soln. I tried Phenix.xtriage it showed me 40% Pseudotranslation peak ( 0,0,0.5) for 3.5A dataset as the c-axis is double that of 5A data. According to cell content analysis it can be dimer in 3.5A and monomer for 5A dataset. So I tried MR with both datasets with homology model build using similar fold protein. I got solns for dimer with LLGs with 1000's in P3221,P3121,P321 with 3.5A dataset. There were 28 solutions

I have attached the image of it with native patt map. I deleted one monomer and refined to check the solution I could see clearly see the other molecule. I could see 2n+1 odd reflections to be weak.

So I tried to see check whether the it can be P32 merohedral twinning with pseudotranslation with twinning of 0.36 (h,-h-k,-l) from yeates server. I try to use the dimer of P3212 and try for alternative spacegroup which yield me unique soln in P32. I refined the molecule four molecule which yielded me 46/49 and when I apply twinning fraction the r-factor decreases to 40/45.
