In the title compound, C17H12Cl2N2O2S2, the dithiacyclopentane ring has an envelope conformation with one of the methylene C atoms as the flap. The chlorophenyl rings make a dihedral angle of 82.63 (7)°. In the crystal, - interactions between the benzene rings of neighbouring molecules [centroid-centroid distance = 3.547 (2) Å] link the molecules into inversion dimers. Weak non-classical C-HX (X = O, N, Cl) interactions further consolidate the packing, forming a layer structure parallel to (110).
