Colonies counted were found to be relatively small compared with those of higher termites and most were found to be headed by a pair or more of supplementary reproductives. A strong correlation was found between headwidth and the number of larval plate ridges on the right mandible which indicated that inP. adamsoni the basic number of larval instars is seven… CONTINUE READING
