This mostly images and photos site is for myrmecologist and hobbyist. While not claiming to be any authority on either of these two insects families, I published my personal encounters and experiences with these super organisms of our earth as my part and contribution to the information data bank of the internet and world wide web. This site features clear, quality photos, pictures and images of termite and ant species.

The soldier of this species of termites has an opened-mandibles rest state. The mandibles when at rest of the soldiers are opened. Soldiers measured at slightly over 5 millimeteres with the workers over 4 millimeters when not constricted (which happened when they are stressed). Euhamitermes hamatus was the only species recorded here (in Singapore and Malacca) and looks very similar to this species but with minor differences (just from the head and mandibles alone).
