Predominantly a rain forest species, but is also found in moist savannah woodland. In parts of its range it builds free-standing mounds consisting of a number of teardrop-shaped lobes standing on a short cylindrical base, or more simple non-lobed mounds up to 70 cm high (Sands 1998). In other parts of ts range, however, it appears to obligately occupy mounds of other species, especially Procubitermes, whose mound chambers match closely those of Noditermes. Group IV soil feeder.
