Space groups with no special Wyckoff positions (i.e. with no special crystallographic orbits) are called fixed-point-free space groups.

Fixed-point-free space groups in E2

Only two fixed-point-free space groups exist in E2: p1 and pg.

Fixed-point-free space groups in E3

Thirteen fixed-point-free space groups exist in E3: P1, P21, Pc, Cc, P212121, Pca21, Pna21, P41, P43, P31, P32, P61, P65.
