The magnetic state of the low-temperature martensite in a Ni43.5Co6.5Mn39Sn11 magnetic shape memory alloy (MSMA) is disclosed. At temperatures (T) above a critical temperature Tf, the magnetization versus field [M(H)] curves display a sigmoid shape, show no magnetic hysteresis, and can be well fitted according to the Langevin model, confirming that the martensite shows superparamagnetic behavior at T>Tf. On the other hand, the observation of a memory effect during the stop-and-wait protocol and the analysis of dynamic magnetic properties probed by ac susceptibility measurements unequivocally corroborate the superspin glass behavior of interacting magnetic clusters at T
