Euhamiltermes

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).

Soldier and workers of Euhamitermes. The workers constrict their abdomen when stressed.
