Hydrothermally prepared La-2(SeO3)(3) contains a three-dimensional network of LaO10 polyhedra [d(av)(La-O) = 2.622 (3) Angstrom] and SeO3 pyramids [d(av)(Se-O) = 1.691 (3) Angstrom]. One of the SeO3 pyramids is in a general position and the other has crystallographic m symmetry. There are pseudo-channels in the [010] direction which are probably associated with the Se-IV lone pairs.
