These termites are distributed in the neotropics, and one species occurs in Florida. The alates are very small, and the front wing is about 7 mm long. There are 13 antennal segments. The soldiers have heads similar to those of Coptotermes.

Calcaritermes nearcticus Alates are about 7 mm long with the wings. The wing membrane is punctate. There are 13 antennal segments. The soldiers' head is about as broad as long, and the front region of the head is high, and strongly concave (as in Cryptotermes). There is a distinct furrow from top to bottom of the front of the head. Swarming flights occur from January to April. Damage is to wood with high moisture content. This species occurs in Florida.
