Zn2-2xCuxInxS2(ZCIS) films with 0.78≤x≤1 grown by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) on (001)-oriented GaP substrates were found to crystallize in the tetragonal chalcopyrite-type structure. The thin films are monocrystalline for all compositions under consideration. Among a striking asymmetry of twin distribution, orientation domains extending along all 〈100〉 directions appear additionally. The size of orientation domains decreases with increasing Zn content. As long as the films have tetragonal chalcopyrite-type structure (x>0.78), all domains are `infected' by CuAu-I type ordering independently of their orientation. Beyond the transition from tetragonal chalcopyrite-type to cubic sphalerite-type ZCIS (x
