In this paper, Ricci curves in a 3-dimensional Weyl space W-3(g, T) are defined and it is shown that any 3-dimensional Chebyshev net formed by the three families of Ricci curves in a W-3(g, T) having a definite metric and Ricci tensors is either a geodesic net or it consists of a geodesic subnet the members of which have vanishing second curvatures. In the case of in indefinite Ricci tensor, only one of the members of the geodesic subnet under consideration has a vanishing second curvature. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
