Examination of type specimens showed that A. filiforme Becker is a valid species with A. dahli Beschovski, syn.n. its junior synonym; A. sicanum Canzoneri, A. strandi Duda and A. trispinum Becker are valid species. Allotrichoma pseudolaterale Raffone, syn.n. is a junior synonym of A. laterale Loew. Allotrichoma leotoni Vitte is recorded from Europe (Cyprus, France) for the first time. Additional faunistic records and distribution maps are presented for A. bifidum Papp, A. filiforme Becker, A. picenum Canzoneri et Rampini, A. quadripectinatum (Becker), A. strandi Duda and A. trispinum Becker. An illustrated key for the European species of Allotrichoma based on the male terminalia is included.
