It is best to use Part for this. I am assuming that the asterisks are
a legacy of a cut and paste?

yourList = {{{{2.5}, {3.8, 31}, {54.23, 46.263, 45.987}, {-82.1476,
5.17782, -205.36}}, {{2.5}, {4.2, 30}, {233.835, 46.469,
46.819}, {93.8625, -13.9818, -198.778}}}, {{{2.5}, {4.1,
30}, {139.845, 15.719, 155.87}, {93.6633,
4.46398, -205.432}}, {{2.5}, {2.6, 32}, {113.381, 40.988,
85.09}, {90.1206, 16.9792, -205.314}}}, {{{2.5}, {3.1,
30}, {113.858, 34.709, 87.567}, {55.3298,
17.7214, -211.648}}, {{2.5}, {2.7, 30}, {110.54, 31.595,
85.601}, {-25.8558, 175.588, -121.105}}}}

yourList[[All, All, -1]]

or

Flatten[yourList[[All, All, -1]], 1]
