Checklists of species of organisms from defined localities have aided scientists who seek to establish new taxon records therein. This work was carried out to update information on the Checklists of Nigerian Termites published about four decades ago and to reconcile information on richness and diversity of Nigerian termites. Taxonomy-related articles published on Nigerian termites were collated, reviewed and compared with the information contained in the world's most comprehensive termite reference by Krishna et al. (2013) to bring this update forth. Currently, Nigerian termites have increased from the previously reported 120 species in 1980 to 147 species in 66 genera from three taxonomic families – Kalotermitidae, Rhinotermitidae and Termitidae.
