The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C15H16N2·C4H8O, contains two amidine molecules (A and B) with slightly different conformations and two tetrahydrofuran (THF) solvent molecules. In the amidine molecules, the dimethyl-phenyl ring and the NH2 group lie to the same side of the N=C bond and the dihedral angles between the aromatic rings are 54.25 (7) (molecule A) and 58.88 (6) ° (molecule B). In the crystal, N - H⋯N hydrogen bonds link the amidine molecules into [100] C(4) chains of alternating A and B molecules. Both amidine molecules form an N - H⋯O hydrogen bond to an adjacent THF solvent molecule.
