Abstract The present work was aimed to investigate the phylogenetic analysis of different species of Indian termites belonging to the family termitidae based on mitochondrial genes COI and COII. The sequences so obtained from public database revealed grouping of termites according to their ecological distribution. The sequences of the species under investigation were characterized on the basis of frequencies of nucleotide bases and in most of the species, a significantly high percentage of A+T base composition was observed. Phylogenetic tree revealed positioning of species according to the analysis of their cytochrome oxidase subunits.
