In the title compound, C39H58O4, the steroid rings A and C adopt a chair conformation, while ring B adopts a half-chair conformation, and ring D has an envelope conformation, with the methyl-substituted C atom as the flap. In the crystal, molecules pack within layers parallel to (100), with their long axis parallel to the [101] direction. Adjacent layers are linked via C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C - H⋯π interactions, forming a three-dimensional framework.
