Ovambotermes

Found in northern Kalahari woodlands and forest-savannah on sandy soil, disappearing when the soil has a greater proportion of clay. Forms small carton nests under logs in sandy soil.

Appears to be a rotting wood feeder, although the mandibles and enteric valves strongly suggest a group IV soil feeder.
