In the title compound, C26H22F2O2, the cyclopropane ring makes dihedral angles of 47.6 (2), 51.3 (2) and 63.9 (2)° with the 2-fluoro-substituted phenyl ring, the unsubstituted phenyl ring and the 4-fluoro-substituted phenyl ring, respectively. There is a short C-HF contact in the molecule. In the crystal, weak C-HF hydrogen bonds lead to chains of molecules extending along the b-axis direction.
