Ophiotermes

Found throughout the savannah woodland and forests of Africa. Appears to be an obligate mound inhabiting genus, and may feed on the matrix of soil mounds, either still occupied or abandoned.

Its large worker crop and extremely extended apical teeth suggest a genus that has a large throughput of material. Very closely related to Euchilotermes and Furculitermes.
