In the title compound, [Fe(C5H8NOS2) 2(H2O)]CF3SO3, the Fe atom has five-coordinate square-pyramidal stereochemistry, with the Fe atom 0.472 (1) Å above the plane of four S atoms and a water molecule O atom at the apex. The cation has m (Cs) symmetry, with the crystallographic mirror plane passing through the Fe, O and N atoms. One O atom of the anion forms a strong hydrogen bond with the coordinated water molecule [O⋯O = 2.642 (5) Å]. This is the first report of a cationic [Fe(dithiocarbamate) 2L]n+ species.
