Morphological and anatomical evidence is presented to support the taxonomic judgment that Talarodictyon tilesii Endlicher is conspecific with Hydroclathrus stephanosorus Kraft in Kraft & Abbott. Because the former name has nomenclatural priority over the latter name, Hydroclathrus tilesii (Endlicher) comb. nov. is proposed.
