Glyptotermes

This genus occurs throughout the tropics, and in the subtropical regions of Australia. The soldiers are 4.5-9.7 mm long and they have long, narrow heads that are somewhat flattened; the mandibles are relatively short. The antennae have 10-12 segments. All species form small to moderate-sized nests. The species occurring in Australia usually establish nests in dead and decaying wood adjacent to sound wood of living trees, particularly eucalyptus. G. brevicornis, G. tuberculatus, and G. iridipennis nest in transmission poles made of eucalyptus, and infestations probably originate in the living tree.
