I really regret not getting better images of these termites. As it is, I might never see this species again for quite a few years.
These were found in the desert under rocks. There were signs of termites around via dirt covering on plant matter similar to those left by Gnathamitermes.
Also, while browsing the termite section, I found many un-IDed pictures that resembled this species, and many other great images that have been neglected, some with great potential for new info and species for the guide.
