The structure of 6,6-dimethyl-4-trichloromethyl-3-oxabicyclo[3.1.0]hexan-2-one-1-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (C11H13Cl3O4), a potential pyrethroid-type intermediate, is presented. It is dominated by the interplanar angle [70.1 (3)°] formed by the lactone and the cyclopropane rings of the molecule. A structural comparison with other related published structures is also presented.
