    The title compound, [Mo(C36H44N4)O] 2[Mo6O19], contains a five-coordinate molybdenum-porphycene cationic complex, accompanied by a centrosymmetric hexamolybdate counter-anion. This is the first structure for a molybdenum porphycene. The shape of the central N4 cavity is rectangular, enlarged lengthwise by metal coordination, and the mean short and long N⋯N distances defining the N4 cavity are 2.582(9) and 3.031(9), respectively.
