The square-pyramidal Mg center in the title compound, [Mg(C32H16N8)(CH4O)], is five-coordinate due to the formation of back-to-back - dimers that saturate the vacant apical site of the metal coordination sphere. Each complex is a member of a back-to-back and a face-to-face dimer; the latter are tethered by two strong O-HN hydrogen bonds. The dimers form columns that likely determine the solid-state packing. The phthalocyaninate ligands are essentially planar, with a slight `hat visor' conformation character.
