A variation of sneutrino inflation based on chi(2) potential is considered where the inflaton and the late-decaying field are sneutrinos of different generations. The lighter, late-decaying sneutrino dilutes the gravitinos over-produced after inflaton decay and generates the matter asymmetry. It can also significantly contribute to the curvature perturbation, realizing the mixed inflaton-curvaton case. The cosmic microwave background (CMB) observables can distinguish this case from inflation with chi(2) potential, provided that the initial value of the late-decaying sneutrino is either an order of magnitude smaller or larger than the reduced Planck scale.
