In the centrosymmetric dinuclear title complex, [Cu2(C24H18N4O6)(C5H5N)2], the CuII ions is tetra­coordinated by two O-atoms and one N-donor of the bridging terephthalo­hydra­zonate ligand and by one pyridine N atom, resulting in a nearly square-planar N2O2 coordination geometry with the CuII ion 0.044 (2) Å out of the mean plane (r.m.s. deviation of 0.0675 Å) of the coordinating atoms.
