In the title compound, [Pd2(C12H9)2I2(C18H15P)2], the dimeric complex molecule lies about an inversion center. The Pd...I...Pd bridges are slightly asymmetric, with Pd-I distances of 2.6709 (6) and 2.7486 (7) Å. The metal atom has a slightly puckered square-planar CI2P environment, the largest deviation from the least-squares plane being 0.143 (8) Å.
