The crystal structure of the title compound, C20H4Cl6O5, C6H6, has been determined by singlecrystal X-ray diffraction at 298 K. Crystals are monoclinic, C2/c, a 7·258(4), b 19·530(7), c 17·027(11) ì β93·59(3)°, Z 4. Both pigment and solvent molecules are located about crystallographic 2 axes; the pigment molecule is considerably distorted as a result of interaction between substituent chlorine atoms on adjacent rings.
