As many as 76 species of termites belonging to 27 genera of families Kalotermitidae, Rhinotermitidae, Stylotermitidae, Indotermitidae and Termitidae, have been revealed through studies of these insects. This comprises 25 percent of the termite fauna of the Indian region (i.e., India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Burma and Sri Lanka) and about 3.5 percent of the world termite fauna.
However, only 55 species were obtained in the present study from a very large collection (nearly 2000 samples) accumulated over 30 years or more at the Zoological Survey of India, through about 32 surveys, conducted by the Survey staff and the present author. They have brought to light one genus and 10 species new to science and another 12 that have been reported for the first time from North East India.
