Abstract Forty-eight family-group names are identified for insects among the Isoptera (termites), representing a nearly 19% increase since the last compilation less than 10 years ago. Accordingly, these names are newly catalogued, including various updates from the original summary. The name Reticulitermitidae is recognized as a nomen nudum while Caatingatermitinae is newly considered a nomen invalidum, and neither is available in zoological nomenclature. A catalogue of the suprafamilial names… Expand
Family-Group Names for Snakeflies (Raphidioptera)
TLDR
The type genus and combining stem are identified for 22 family-group names for snakeflies, including the new subtribes Mongoloraphidiina and Ohmellina, and the higher classification of the order is briefly summarized. Expand
Diverse, primitive termites (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae, incertae sedis) from the early Miocene of New Zealand
TLDR
Six genera and species, inclusive of Stolotermes kupe Kaulfuss et al., are now known from Miocene New Zealand; most are attributable to the Kalotermitidae (drywood termites) and one, left as family incertae sedis, has kalotermitid‐like traits. Expand
Early Cretaceous termites in amber from northern Spain (Isoptera).
Abstract Two virtually complete termites in Lower Cretaceous amber from the Penacerrada I outcrop, Spain, are described and figured, representing the most well-preserved Isoptera yet discovered fromExpand
The oldest known mastotermitids (Blattodea: Termitoidae) and phylogeny of basal termites
TLDR
Five finely preserved termites from the mid‐Cretaceous (Cenomanian) amber of Myanmar provide new information allowing a reanalysis of the phylogeny of basal termites, and both new taxa are assigned to the Mastotermitidae, as they are shown to have synapomorphies that unite the family. Expand
Termites (Isoptera) in the Azores: an overview of the four invasive species currently present in the archipelago
TLDR
This contribution summarizes the current status of the known termites of the Azores and presents a comparative description of these species, their known distribution in the archipelago, which control measures are being used against them, and what can be done in the future to eradicate and control these pests in theAzores. Expand
A mitochondrial genome phylogeny of termites (Blattodea: Termitoidae): robust support for interfamilial relationships and molecular synapomorphies define major clades.
TLDR
A highly supported tree of termite relationships was produced, however the relationship of the termites+Cryptocercus clade to other cockroach lineages was highly affected by the strong nucleotide compositional bias found in termites relative to other dictyopterans. Expand
Etude De La Diversite Des Termites (Isoptera) Dans Quelques Localites De La Region De Kolda (Haute Casamance, Senegal)
TLDR
A study on the diversity of termites in the region of Kolda (Casamance) and the types of nests, termites encountered are divided into 3 groups: the more diversified are those that build ground-nest without fungus, while the fungusgrowing termites are more diversifying. Expand
Searching for Better Methodologies for Successful Control of Termites Using Entomopathogenic Nematodes
TLDR
The information provided in this chapter will help researchers to enhance their skills of the use of EPNs against termites by selecting from the methodologies described here the best ones to adapt to particular experimental conditions, especially in African soil conditions. Expand
Potential Distribution and Cost Estimation of the Damage Caused by Cryptotermes brevis (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae) in the Azores
TLDR
It is predicted that the absence of a control strategy will cause a further expansion of the pest to more localities in the Azores, and the cost of treating all currently infested buildings in the archipelago is 51 million, while reconstruction of the same buildings would rise the costs to 175 million. Expand
Termite Foraging on Plants of a Brazilian Savanna: the Effects of Tree Height
TLDR
Tmite foraging on Cerrado plant species varied considerably and it was influenced by several factors including plant height and host species, probably due to the amount of available resources for nesting and feeding for the termites. Expand

Family-group names in Coleoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
A catalogue of 4887 family-group names based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given, which recognizes as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663 tribes and 740 subtribes. Expand
TWO OVERLOOKED FAMILY-GROUP NAMES FOR FOSSIL TERMITES (ISOPTERA: MASTOTERMITIDAE)
TLDR
During the final phases of completing a new, annotated world catalog of the termites (Isoptera) two family-group names for termites were discovered that had been overlooked during prior accounts of such names, and the name Miotermitinae is formally placed into synonymy with Mastotermitidae (newsynonymy).
