The title complex, [Ag2(NO2)2(C25H22P2)2]·2CH3CN, is a centrosymmetric dimer in which two bis(diphenylphosphino)methane ligands bridge two Ag+ ions, forming an eight-membered ring with a short Ag...Ag separation of 3.1809 (5) Å. The distorted P2O2 coordination of the cation is completed by two O-donors from a symmetric bidentate chelate NO2- anion [Ag-O = 2.550 (3) and 2.567 (3) Å].
