Abstract: This report describes the termite fauna of the Savanna Ecosystem Project study area at the Nylsvley Nature Reserve, with an illustrated key for identification of species. Twenty-one species of fifteen genera and two families are recorded, and notes on their biology are given. Most of the species occur in the flatter areas of Burkea savanna; three are restricted to open land near the turfvlei" Tfie broad-leaved woodland of Maroelakop lacks two species but has two others restricted. Acacia patches (including sites of former human settlement) have a much reduced variety of species. The faunal composition is broadly similar to that of west African savannas, but a little impoverished. Main deficiencies are in a variety of Macrotermitinae and Trinervitermes; Termitinae are broadly comparable.
