A recent study which addressed the nature of the association between hydrogenoxalate anions in the solid state came to the conclusion that short OH···O contacts between these species did not constitute an attractive interaction, but one which simply minimized inter-anion repulsion; in the light of new crystallographic evidence and a solution study, some issues raised in this work need to be re-evaluated.
