The title compound, C12H19IO5, is the orthorhombic polymorph of a previously reported monoclinic form [Krajewski et al. (1987). Bull. Pol. Acad. Sci. Chem. 35, 91–102]. The dihedral angles between the six-membered ring and the two five-membered rings are 67.66 (14) and 71.79 (13)', whereas the dihedral angle between the five-membered rings is 74.41 (12)', indicating that all three rings are twisted from each other. The six-membered ring has a twist-boat conformation while both of the five-membered rings have envelope conformations. The crystal structure is stabilized by a network of C—H...O contacts linking the molecules into a twodimensional array parallel to the ab plane.
