The asymmetric unit of the binuclear title compound, [Sn2(C2O )(C6H)6(CHNS)2], consists of one half of the organotin(IV) molecule. The remainder is generated by a twofold rotation axis passing through the mid-point of the oxalate C-C bond. The Sn atom exhibits a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination environment with the phenyl groups in equatorial positions and the thiourea and the monodentately bridging oxalate anion in axial positions. The molecules are linked through N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the amino group of the thiourea ligand and the uncoordinating oxalate O atoms, forming layers parallel to (001). Weak C-H⋯O interactions are also present.
