Nests of the termite C. cyphergaster were studied regarding their dimensions, volume, choice of supporting tree, level and cardinal orientation on the tree. Sixty of these nests were sampled in 1.5 ha of "strictu sensu" cerrado area at Sete Lagoas, MG. The floral composition of the area was determined and the trunk diameter of the supporting tree was measured at 1 m of height. Nests were found on 17 species of tree mainly on Qualea grandiflora in a rate superior to its relative density. A marked preference for larger trees was found. Their volumes ranged between 1.47-52.85 dm3 and they faced mainly the north.
