I'm trying to create a chart that contains two series - one is of type Radar and the other of type Radar_Filled.

The output is that both series have the same type.

Here is the code for the console app, I based it on your sample. (also attached if more convenient)
I am using Syncfusion.XlsIO.Web 9.304.0.61


using System.IO;
using Syncfusion.XlsIO;

namespace TestingXlsioTwoRadarTypes {
class Program {
static void Main(string[] args) {

//New instance of XlsIO is created.[Equivalent to launching MS Excel with no workbooks open].
//The instantiation process consists of two steps.

//Step 1 : Instantiate the spreadsheet creation engine.
ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();

//Step 2 : Instantiate the excel application object.
IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;

//A new workbook is created.[Equivalent to creating a new workbook in MS Excel]
//The new workbook will have 1 worksheet.
IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Create(1);
//The first worksheet object in the worksheets collection is accessed.
IWorksheet sheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

// Entering the Datas for the chart
sheet.Range["A1"].Text = "Crescent City, CA";
sheet.Range["A1"].CellStyle.Font.Bold = true;

sheet.Range["B3"].Text = "Precipitation,in.";
sheet.Range["C3"].Text = "Temperature,deg.F";

sheet.Range["A4"].Text = "Jan";
sheet.Range["A5"].Text = "Feb";
sheet.Range["A6"].Text = "March";
sheet.Range["A7"].Text = "Apr";
sheet.Range["A8"].Text = "May";
sheet.Range["A9"].Text = "June";
sheet.Range["A10"].Text = "July";
sheet.Range["A11"].Text = "Aug";
sheet.Range["A12"].Text = "Sept";
sheet.Range["A13"].Text = "Oct";
sheet.Range["A14"].Text = "Nov";
sheet.Range["A15"].Text = "Dec";

sheet.Range["B4"].Number = 10.9;
sheet.Range["B5"].Number = 8.9;
sheet.Range["B6"].Number = 8.6;
sheet.Range["B7"].Number = 4.8;
sheet.Range["B8"].Number = 3.2;
sheet.Range["B9"].Number = 1.4;
sheet.Range["B10"].Number = 0.6;
sheet.Range["B11"].Number = 0.7;
sheet.Range["B12"].Number = 1.7;
sheet.Range["B13"].Number = 5.4;
sheet.Range["B14"].Number = 9.0;
sheet.Range["B15"].Number = 10.4;

sheet.Range["C4"].Number = 47.5;
sheet.Range["C5"].Number = 48.7;
sheet.Range["C6"].Number = 48.9;
sheet.Range["C7"].Number = 50.2;
sheet.Range["C8"].Number = 53.1;
sheet.Range["C9"].Number = 56.3;
sheet.Range["C10"].Number = 58.1;
sheet.Range["C11"].Number = 59.0;
sheet.Range["C12"].Number = 58.5;
sheet.Range["C13"].Number = 55.4;
sheet.Range["C14"].Number = 51.1;
sheet.Range["C15"].Number = 47.8;

// Adding a New chart to the Existing Worksheet
IChart chart = workbook.Charts.Add();
chart.DataRange = sheet.Range["A3:C15"];
chart.Name = "CrescentCity,CA";
chart.ChartTitle = "Crescent City, CA";
chart.IsSeriesInRows = false;

chart.PrimaryValueAxis.Title = "Precipitation,in.";
chart.PrimaryValueAxis.TitleArea.TextRotationAngle = 90;

// Format serie
IChartSerie serieOne = chart.Series[0];
serieOne.Name = "Precipitation,in.";
serieOne.SerieType = ExcelChartType.Radar_Filled;

//Show value as data labels
serieOne.DataPoints.DefaultDataPoint.DataLabels.IsValue = true;
serieOne.DataPoints.DefaultDataPoint.DataLabels.Position = ExcelDataLabelPosition.Outside;

//Format the second serie
IChartSerie serieTwo = chart.Series[1];
serieTwo.SerieType = ExcelChartType.Radar_Markers;
serieTwo.Name = "Temperature,deg.F";


//Saving the workbook to disk.
var stream = new FileStream("sample.xls", FileMode.Create);

workbook.SaveAs(stream, ExcelSaveType.SaveAsXLS);
