In the title compound, [Au2Cl2(C30H32As2)], each Au atom is coordinated by As and Cl atoms in an approximately linear geometry. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into two-dimensional networks parallel to the ac plane via inter­molecular C—H⋯Cl inter­actions. One of the phenyl rings is disordered over two positions, with site occupancies of 0.518 (8) and 0.482 (8).
