Abstract
Two species of dampwood termites, Neotermes jouteli (Banks) and N. luykxi Nickle & Collins, are redescribed based on the imago and the small and large soldier caste. Morphological characters are reported to separate the above castes of these two species. N. jouteli occurs in southeastern Florida, the central Bahamas, Cuba, and Mexico. N. luykxi is endemic to southeastern Florida, the Bahamas, and Turks and Caicos Islands, but is apparently absent from Cuba. A key to the Neotermes found sympatrically with N. luykxi is given.
