The title compound, C₁₈H₁₃FN₂OS, is the first structural example of a [6-5] fused ring incorporating the 2,3-dihydro-4H-imidazo[5,1-b][1,3]thiazin-4-one molecular scaffold. The six-membered 2,3-dihydro-1,3-thiazin-4-one ring adopts an envelope conformation, with the S-CH₂ C atom displaced by 0.761 (2) Å from the five-atom plane (all within 0.05 Å of the mean plane). The imidazole ring is planar. The phenyl ring is twisted from coplanarity with the imidazole ring by 23.84 (5)° and the 4-fluorophenyl ring is twisted by 53.36 (6)°, due to a close C(aryl)-H...O=C contact with the thiazin-4-one carbonyl O atom. The primary intermolecular interaction involves a CH₂ group with the F atom [C...F = 3.256 (2) Å and C-H...F = 137°].
