Odontotermes sp4.

This is the smallest species of Odontotermes I have encountered so far. The soldiers at just 5 mm long is almost as small as Microtermes and can easily be mistaken for such without careful examination.

Odontotermes gyne and workers
The reproductives of this small Odontotermes are the same normal size that is common among most Odontotermes species in this location.
 The workers of this small Odontotermes termite species are dimorphic but the soldiers typical of Odontotermes are monomorhic.
