In the title compound, C11H9NO2Se, the pyridine and phenyl rings are almost perpendicular, with the dihedral angle between their mean planes being 79.16 (7)°. In the crystal, the molecules pack so as to form ruffled sheets in the (110) plane connected by weak C-HO interactions. In addition, there are weak - interactions between the mean planes of both the phenyl [centroid-centroid perpendicular distance of 3.591 (2) Å and slippage of 1.854 (2) Å] and pyridine rings [centroid-centroid perpendicular distance of 3.348 (2) Å and slippage of 1.854 (2) Å].
