Observations are presented on the occurrence and association of Ammoxenus amphalodes, A. coccineus, A. daedalus and A. pentheri with harvester termites. Their abundance in areas infested with termites, predatory behaviour and daily and seasonal activity patterns suggest that they are specialist predators of harvester termites. Individuals of these species are able to prey on and move freely among foraging termites without eliciting aggressive behaviour or the release of alarm pheromones.
