          Abstract

          Dentispicotermes Emerson, 1950 comprises five species confined to the Neotropics. We report the presence of D. cupiporanga Bandeira & Cancello, 1992 in northern Venezuela and two undescribed congeners from Bolivia and Paraguay. This soil-feeding termite genus is rare and is characterized by a diagnostic enteric valve armature that we describe for the first time.
