A new phytophagous termite from Saudi Arabia

  • W. V. Harris (a1)


Records of termites attacking growing crops in Saudi Arabia have so far referred to Microcerotermes diversus Silv., one of the subfamily Amitermitinae of the Termitidae (Ayoub, 1959). This termite is also known from the Yemen, the South Arabia Federation and Iraq.
