Hypotermes

Hypotermes are fungus growing small termites of the Macroterminitinae subfamily. These are generally small termites that in appearance looks very similar to Odontotermes but lack the characteristic tooth on the left mandibles. Most species of this genus has a slight serration at the base of the left mandibles.
