Diffraction data were taken from the contribution named `β-DL-Methionine at 105 K' by Alagar et al. [Acta Cryst. (2005). E61, o1165-o1167]. Refinement of the coordinates of the three amino H atoms, previously constrained to an idealized geometry, shows that the amino group is in fact rotated 13.5° from the perfectly staggered orientation. This apparently modest change has a profound impact on the calculated hydrogen-bond geometries.
