The specific heat of the ytterbium monopnictides YbX (X = N, P, As, Sb) measured in magnetic fields up to 10 T shows a different field dependence of the broad peak around 5 K in the four compounds. The zero-field data are analyzed with a new model including both Kondo effect and magnetic excitations.
