In this brief report we compare the predictions of a recentnext-to-next-to-leading order hard-thermal-loop perturbation theory (HTLpt)calculation of the QCD trace anomaly to available lattice data. We focus on thetrace anomaly scaled by T^2 in two cases: Nf = 0 and Nf = 3. We find that forYang-Mills theory (Nf = 0) agreement between HTLpt and lattice data for theT^2-scaled trace anomaly begins at temperatures above 8 Tc while when includingquarks (Nf = 3) agreement begins already at temperatures above 2 Tc . In bothcases we find that at very high temperatures the T^2-scaled trace anomalyincreases with temperature in accordance with the predictions of HTLpt.
