For the title compound of a superconducting organic salt, we have observed twinning and found the twin plane to be (3, 0, 7) by X-ray diffraction method at room temperature. The reduction of the diffuse intensities in the twinned crystal leads that the twin plays a role to decrease the internal strain and also acts as a cleavage plane. It is roughly estimated by the Bijvoet measurement that the twinned region takes a mirror image to the matrix.
