Celestún Biosphere Reserve, Yucatán, México.
Under a rock, my partner and I found a collection of small insects swarming around. These insects, presumably termite larvae, are around the size of a grain of rice, and translucent in color.
6 legs, 2 antennas, appears to have 2 wings when at rest, pincers at the end of the head. 1 inch long length including wings. Dark brown color. Appeared to be a swarmer.
Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below), but are now accepted as the infraorder Isoptera, of the cockroach order Blattodea. While termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as "white ants", they are for practical purposes unrelated to the ants (although they are prey to some ants, including the acrobat ant).
