Let G be a dicyclic group and 􀀀 (G) be the attached graph related to its conjugacy classes, which is defined as: the vertices of 􀀀 (G) are represented by the non-central conjugacy classes of G and two distinct vertices xG and yG are connected with an edge if (o(x), o(y)) > 1. In this paper, we calculate the clique number and the girth of 􀀀 (G) for dicyclic groups of orders 4p, 8p, 4p2, 4pq and 2m.
