In the title compound, C18H17N3O2Se, the selenadiazole ring is planar [maximum deviation = 0.012 (2) Å for the ring C atom bearing the phenyl substituent]. The dihedral angle between the selenadiazole ring and the attached benzene ring is 46.5 (1)°. There is one short intra­molecular C—H⋯Se contact.
