Establishment of the African termite, Coptotermes sjostedti (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae), on the Island of Guadeloupe, French West Indies
Annals of the Entomological Society of America 97 (5), 872-876
Abstract: Based on morphological and genetic comparisons, an established population of the African termite, Coptotermes sjostedti Holmgren, was identified on the island of Guadeloupe. This is the sixth recorded species of an endemic Old World termite becoming established in the New World. We hypothesize that this species arrived from tropical West Africa by maritime transport.
