Mastotermes is endemic to Northern Australia, but has been introduced to Papua New Guinea, and apparently to Gebe Island, west of Halmahera in the north Moluccas (Watson & Abbey, 1993). Fossil species have been recorded from the Eocene, Miocene, and Oligocene in southern England (Jarzembowski, 1984), Continental Europe (Grasse, 1985), and Mexico (Krishna & Emerson, 1983).
