Summary.

 A new crystal structure refinement based on published X-ray diffraction data [1] of the normal pressure modification of B2O3 (B2O3 form I) shows that the correct space group is (152) P3121 instead of (144) P31 within limits of error.

Keywords. B2O3 form I; Trigonal diboron trioxide; Space group correction.
