Abstract: 

Comparisons: The major, median and minor soldiers of new species, Mironasutitermes huangshanensis, resemble that of M. heterodon but differ as follows: 1. Major soldier: head capsule without rostrum oblate, rostrum length approximately equals a half of head length including rostrum and with smaller head size (vs. wider pear-shaped head, rostrum length is less than a half of head length including rostrum and with larger head size); 2. Median soldier: pronotum with anterior margin emargination in the middle (vs. pronotum without anterior margin emargination in the middle); and 3. Minor soldier: almost round-shaped head and the head width broader (vs. head pear-shaped and head width narrower).

Holotype and Paratypes: The major, median and minor soldiers of the new species were collected in Mt.Huang(30º0´N, 118º1´E),AnhuiProvince, by Chen Zheng and Wang Yamin, Sept. 18, 1987, from a dead stump.

Holotype is deposited in Shanghai Institute of Entomology, Academia Sinica. Paratypes are deposited separately in Shanghai Institute of Entomology, Academia Sinica and Nanjing Institute of Termite Control.
