Constrictotermes cacaoensis n. sp. is described from Cacao, a locality in the North-East of French Guyana. It clearly differs from the other described Constrictotermes spp.: C. cavifrons (Holmgren, 1910), C. cyphergaster (Silvestri, 1901), C. guantanamensis Krecek, Scheffrahn & Roisin, 1996, C. latinotus (Holmgren, 1910), et C. rupestris Constantino, 1997 in several morphological characters of the thorax, head capsule, antennal segments and dimensions of the soldier, but also in the structure of the worker mandibles. We record for the first time Constrictotermes cavifrons (Holmgren, 1910) from French Guyana.
