A taxonomically heterogeneous group of species linked only by the shape of the end of the soldier mandibles. Biologically they share this heterogeneity, with species apparently true soil feeders and species feeding in soil plastered into dead logs by Macrotermitinae (e.g. U. trispinosus). However, all are classified as Group IV soil feeders. Many are found in the mounds and nests of other species.
