A new primitive termite from the lower cretaceous (Albian) Jinju Formation of Korea

Abstract : A new genus and species of termite is described and figured from the Jinju Formation as Sclerotermes samsiki gen. et sp. nov. This new genus and species is left without family attribution because of the lack of information for body characters (e.g., tarsus configuration, pronotum shape). This new taxon differs from all other termites, inter alia, owing to its forewing with RA with four main branches and its forewing scale heavily sclerotised. This new species is the first termite described from the Jinju Formation.
