The title compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic system, space group Pbnm, a = 9.933 (2), b = 11.068 (2), c = 17.134 (3) Å, z = 4. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined via block-diagonal least squares to R = 0.061. The arrangement of the cyclopropyl rings with respect to the benzene ring approximates point symmetry D3d. The crystallographic site symmetry is m with the mirror plane perpendicular to the benzene ring and passing through two of its vertices.
