We are investigating the structures of 1,8-disubstituted naphthalenes as part of a wider study into steric crowding and hyperconjugation. In the title compound, C16H11BrSe, the Se center dot center dot center dot Br distance is 3.1136 ( 5) angstrom. The Br and Se atoms lie 0.400 ( 1) and -0.421 ( 1) A, respectively, from the mean plane of the naphthalene backbone. The heavy atoms are further accommodated by in-plane distortions in the C-C-C group between the Br and Se atoms. As expected from the heavy atom displacement, the phenylselenyl group lies on one side of the naphthalene plane, the phenyl ring being inclined at 88 degrees to the naphthalene plane.
