The phase states of a non-Heisenberg two-dimensional ferromagnet are studied, in which the long-range magnetic order is stabilized by the magnetoelastic interaction. It is shown that in this system, together with the phases of nonzero magnetic order, there exists a quadrupolar phase characterized by a tensor order parameter at zero external field. The transition temperature from the quadrupolar phase to the paramagnetic phase is determined.
