Employing single-crystal x-ray-diffraction techniques, the crystal structure of FeNb3Se10 was found to consist of two NbSe6 trigonal prismatic chains of the type found in NbSe3 and a double chain of edge-shared MSe6 octahedra, both running parallel to the monoclinic b axis. The metal-atom disorder, critical to the interpretation of previously observed electronic properties, is confined to the octahedral chains.
