We consider the existence of the periodic solutions in the neighbourhood of equilibria for C ∞ equivariant Hamiltonian vector fields. If the equivariant symmetry S acts antisymplectically and S 2 I, we prove that generically purely imaginary eigenvalues are doubly degenerate and the equilibrium is contained in a local two-dimensional flow-invariant manifold, consisting of a one-parameter family of symmetric periodic solutions and two two-dimensional flow-invariant manifolds each containing a
