Looks like some sort of Reticulitermes, but the given dimensions sound a bit too big for that genus. Did you get any pictures of workers?


I keep termites - check them out! I've also made a guide...

Quite late answer, but i'd say Reticulitermes tibialis. to be sure you should photograph the underside of the soldier's head to show the postmentum width. In which environments you found them?

You're good with termites. Are they your specialty?

They are my passion, but i never formally studied or worked with them. We're all here to learn!
