Trachys minutus is a species of jewel beetles belonging to the family Buprestidae.


Trachys minutus is a beetle of the small size reaching a length of 3 to 3.5 millimeters. It is dark colored, shiny and slightly hairy. The female lays eggs on the leaves of deciduous trees, especially elm (Ulmus). The larvae eat the green tissue between the upper and lower layer of the leaves, making cavities called mines.

This species is present in most of Europe, the eastern Palearctic realm, and the Near East.
