Procubitermes

Widespread genus in sub-Saharan forest and moist savannah woodland. Mounds consist of a series of lobes, and can be free-sanding, although forest mounds are often build against he sides of trees and have elaborate, sometimes extensive, chevron-like structures above the mound to assist in water run-off.

Procubitermes is also found in the nests of other mound-building species. Group IV feeder.
