    The genus Trachypora Milne-Edwards & Haime 1851 was originally established for the species T. davidsoni Milne-Edwards & Haime 1851, which is unsufficiently known; therefore the use of this generic name should be avoided. Most of the Devonian species of the Old World assigned to this genus by subsequent authors belong very probably to the genus Hillaepora Mironova 1960. The American Devonian species are either members of the family Dendroporidae de Fromentel 1861, or species of the genus Thamnoptychia Hall 1877. Consequently, the use of the family name Trachyporidae Waagen & Wentzel 1886 also should be avoided.
