A 'royal area' in the nest of Kalotermes flavicollis Fabr. (Isoptera)



A 'royal area' in the nest of Kalotermes flavicollis Fabr. (Isoptera)



Monitore Zoologico Italiano, 141-2: 53-61



The behaviour of the king and queen of Kalotermes flavicollis (F.) was observed in groups each comprising a primary royal pair, 20 pseudergates and 4 soldiers in artificial nests in the laboratory at Ferrara (Italy). The royal pair tended to remain together, even when they moved around the nest; any brief separations were initiated by the more mobile king. Most of the royal pairs studied chose one cell as their habitual living area, which they left and returned to from time to time.
