Major protozoan fauna in the tropical subterranean termite, Coptotermes curvignathus Holmgren (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)



Major protozoan fauna in the tropical subterranean termite, Coptotermes curvignathus Holmgren (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)



Sociobiology 32(1): 119-124



The abundance and distribution of protozoan population in the alimentary system of lower termite, Coptotermes curvignathus (Rhinotermitidae), were studied. The result shows that the protozoa were represented by three major genera, Pseudotrichonympha, Holomastigotoides and Spirotrichonympha. They were found mainly in the hindgut. The genus Spirotrichonympha was the predominant protozoan, representing more than 67% of the total protozoan population.
