In the title compound, [Sn(C6H5)3(C5H8NS2)], the SnIV atom adopts a distorted SnC3S tetrahedral coordination geometry [spread of bond angles = 94.43 (7)-120.74 (7)°]. A short intramolecular SnS contact [3.0270 (9) Å] occurs and two intramolecular C-HS interactions help to establish the conformation. Three of the methylene groups of the pyrrolidine-1-carbodithioate ligand are disordered over two sets of sites of equal occupancy. In the crystal, very weak C-HS interactions link the molecules into a three-dimensional network, with both S atoms acting as acceptors.
