Nothing is known of the biology of this termite. Its closest living relative appears to be the desert termite Psammotermes. However, the only Glossotermes record is from rainforest at about 700 m. Presumably it is a wood feeder like all other genera within the family.
Recently it has been suggested (Cancello, pers comm.) that Glossotermes may be the sister genus to Serritermes, and so better placed within the Serritermitidae.
