          Abstract

          The genus Termes Linnaeus, 1758 occurs in the Neotropical, Ethiopian, and Oriental regions and is notable for the long, narrow, and nearly symmetrical mandibles of the soldier caste.  I report the presence of T. hispaniolae (Banks, 1918) in Bolivia and provide many additional new geographic records throughout the Caribbean Basin.  Termes hispaniolae is common in much of its range, and workers are characterized by a diagnostic enteric valve armature that is described here for the first time.
