NOTES ON PHILIPPINE TERMITES, II By S. F. LIGHTProfessor of Zoology, College of Liberal Arts, University of the Philippines SIX PLATES AND THREE TEXT FIGURES This paper presents descriptions of six species of Philippinetermites which seem to be new to science. They represent fourgenera (Kalotermes, Cryptotermes, Prorinotermes, and Leuco-termes) not heretofore reported from the Islands and one newgenus, Planocryptotermes. The list of species described is asfollows: Genus Kalotrmes Hagen sensu restricto. 1. Kalotermes megregori sp. nov. Genus Cryptotermes Banks. 2. Cryptotermes cynocephalus sp. nov. Genus Plnocry!ptotermes gen. nov. 3. Planoeryptotermes nocevs sp. nov. Genus Prorhinotermes Silvestri. 4. Prorinotermes lzonensis sp. nov . 5. Pror1inotermes grwaciis ap. nov. Genus Leucotermes Silvestri sensu restricto. 6. Leotermes philippinenis sp. nov. These species, with the exception of P. nocens, belong to generaof widespread occurrence, known from Japan and Formosa too xcept Katerme) and from the t Indies, Ceylon,and India to the south, and it might well have been predictedthat such termite species would be found in our Philippine fauna.by McGregor as well as my earlier collections failed to bringnot having been collected, however, are not far to seek. Withexception of the Planocryptotermes species, they are not amongour common forms. Nor are they conspicuous, since noe n ofthem builds mounds or exposed nests; nor do the first five speciesbuild exposed galleries, while the last one to be a rarespecies.
