The solid‐state structure of the title compound, [Cu(C19H13F2N2)(C5H9N)2], shows that the CuI centre adopts a distorted tetrahedral coordination geometry, being coordinated by two N atoms of the 6‐aminofulvene‐2‐aldimine (AFA) chelating ligand and by the bridgehead C atoms of the two isocyanide ligands. The cyclopentadienyl and imine components of the AFA ligand are approximately coplanar, with an angle between the planes of 5.00 (3)°. The Cu atom lies 0.6460 (3) Å above the imine plane defined by the N and C atoms of the seven‐membered metallocycle. There is also an uncommon C—H...Cu anagostic interaction, with an intramolecular Cu...H distance of 2.67 Å, which is less than the sum of the van der Waals radii.
