The title compound, C(19)H(21)N(3)O, was isolated from the fruits of Evodia rutaecarpa. The indole and benzene rings are both essentially planar with mean derivations of 0.0094 (4) Å and 0.0077 (3) Å, respectively. The dihedral angle between these two planes is 78.24 (9)°. The amide carbonyl plane is roughly parallel to the indole ring with a dihedral angle of 7.0 (2)°, but makes a dihedral angle of 82.9 (3)° with the benzene ring. Inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen-bonding inter-actions involving the amino and carbonyl groups give rise to a three-dimensional network.
