We present a new model to interpret recent measurements on Hg1-xMnxSe which show an angular dependence of the nodes in the Shubnikov-de Haas amplitude. The model is based on an infinite Hamiltonian matrix including inversion asymmetry terms. We additionally took into account the exchange interaction, typical for Semimagnetic Semiconductors. By truncating the matrix we can calculate the electron energy levels, allowing us to describe the experimentally observed nodal field positions.
