The crystal studied of the title compound, C(21)H(14)F(2)OS, was an inversion twin with a 0.67 (8):0.33 (8) domain ratio. The 4-fluoro-phenyl ring in the 2-position makes a dihedral angle of 25.14 (6)° with the mean plane of the benzofuran fragment, and the dihedral angle between 4-fluoro-phenyl ring in the 5-position and the mean plane of the benzofuran fragment is 28.50 (7)°. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked through weak inter-molecular C-H⋯F and C-H⋯π inter-actions.
