In the title molecule, [Fe(C5H5)(C19H15N2)], the five-membered C3N2 imidazole ring forms dihedral angles of 84.71 (13) and 52.12 (11)°, respectively, with the substituted cyclopentadienyl and phenyl rings. In the crystal structure, in addition to a weak C-H...N interaction, there is a modest C-H...[pi](ring) interaction involving a C-H group of the unsubstituted cyclopentadienyl ring and the imidazole ring.
