Along with the massive Incisitermes minor colony I got yesterday, I also got this weird subterranean termite along with them. I was thinking of just combining the journals, since they share the same setup. But I'd rather the I. minor journal be just for them.
I don't have pictures, and I haven't actually seen any reproductives. Not sure if there is even a queen. There is quite a lot of them though. What is interesting though is how they look. They are rather tiny, smaller than Argentine ant workers. Even the soldiers are smaller than Argentine ants. But the unique thing is they are rather thin and elongated. The soldiers have these weird long heads and long bodies compared to their width. They aren't the typical subterranean termites I've come across before, and its my first time seeing this particular species.
The soldiers also seem rather shy, they barely come out. I was hoping to take a picture of a soldier, but no luck so far. Also, the worker ratio seems to vastly outnumber the number of soldiers they have. I've actually only seen one single soldier. Then it disappeared pretty quick.
Its such an unique looking subterranean termite, but no idea what they could be at all. The workers are pretty active though.
