In the title compound, C16H8F6N2, the dihedral angle between the pyrazole and difluorobenzene rings is 50.30 (13)°, while those between the pyrazole and fluorobenzene rings and between the difluorobenzene and fluorobenzene rings are 38.56 (13) and 53.50 (11)°, respectively. Aromatic - stacking interactions between adjacent difluorobenzene rings [centroid-centroid separation = 3.6082 (11) Å] link the molecules into dimers parallel to [21-2].
