The members of the beetle family Trox are found in two places: Insecta:Psocoptera:Trogiidae and Insecta:Coleoptera:Trogidae.

As far as I can tell, there is not genus Trox in the Trogiidae, so all members of that genus are beetles and should be in Trogidae.

Members of Omorgus and Afromorgus are also currently divided among Pscoptera:Trogiidae and Coleoptera:Trogidae; all should be in Coleoptera:Trogidae
