dc.description.abstract Genus Coptotermes is a group of subterranean termite with almost all of the species caused damages in wooden structures and crop plants in the world, including in Indonesia. A survey and collection of termites using insidential sampling were conducted from 2012 to 2013 to investigate the the ditribution of Coptotermes (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in South Sulawesi. A total of 34 samples was genetically analyzed based on gen mitochondrial DNA cytochrome sub-unit II (mtDNA COII). Based on the high similirity analysis, there are six species of Coptotermes identified, i.e. C. sjoestedti, C. gestroi, C. amanii, Coptotermes sp. (identic voucher P2Wo), C. curvignathus, and Coptotermes sp. C. curvignathus was spread in limited areas (upper area of nothern part), while other species were spread almost evenly through out the region.
