Accepted answer

Yes they can, a trait that extends a class puts a restriction on what classes can extend that trait - namely, all classes that mix-in that trait must extend that class.

scala> class Foo
defined class Foo

scala> trait FooTrait extends Foo
defined trait FooTrait

scala> val good = new Foo with FooTrait
good: Foo with FooTrait = $anon$1@773d3f62

scala> class Bar
defined class Bar

scala> val bad = new Bar with FooTrait
<console>:10: error: illegal inheritance; superclass Bar
 is not a subclass of the superclass Foo
 of the mixin trait FooTrait
       val bad = new Bar with FooTrait
                              ^
