Abstract. A necessary condition will be given for the hyponormality of $C^*_\phi $ when $\phi $ is a linear fractional transformation mapping the unit disk into itself. This necessary condition is an improvement on a condition given by Sadraoui and partially answers a question raised by Cowen and MacCluer.
