This table is based on Table 1 of Wintgen (1941).
In order to obtain the Hermann–Mauguin symbol of from that of , one replaces any screw rotations by rotations and any glide reflections by reflections. The result is the symmorphic space group assigned to . For most space groups , the reciprocal-space group is isomorphic to , i.e. and belong to the same arithmetic crystal class. In the following cases the arithmetic crystal classes of and are different, i.e. can not be obtained in this simple way:
