Termite?

termite croatia leucotermes lucifagus

Best Answer LC3 , October 16 2017 - 12:41 AM

Well this is a termite. I can't find anything online except for a few cryptic pages, nor any pictures of Leucotermes lucifagus, it looks like Kalotermes flavicollis in my opinion, but I'm not sure if they are present in Croatia.

It is believed there are no termites in Croatia.

I stumbled upon a bug that might actually be one (to my unexperienced eye).

The Internet says that there is Leucotermes lucifagus in coastal Croatia, and lo and behold, that's where I'm at.

So, is it a termite?

Well that settles it!

It certaily looks like Kalotermes flavicollis. It has probably not been recorded in Croatia as of yet.

Either that or we have the first photos of this mystic Leucotermes lucifagus bigfoot termite! :)  :lol:

This termite alate has the nicest coloration that I've ever seen in an alate (except for Z. angusticollis and C. gestroi). I love the little white ring pattern behind its head.
