Trixagus atticus Reitter, which was described from Greece, has a large distribution. It was recently discovered in several countries of western Europe and in Cyprus. Trixagus minutus Rey, which was synonymized with T. obtusus (Curtis) by all authors is a valid species which belongs to the atticus group. T. ciliaris Rey is kept as synonym of T. obtusus (Curtis). This case of T. pusillus (Heer) is examined but unresolved, the original specimens being missing. Lectotypes of T. minutus and T. ciliaris are designated.
