Termitidae is a family of termites whose members are commonly known as the higher termites. They are evolutionarily the most specialised termite group, with their gut having a high capacity to degrade lignocellulose.

The family contains the following subfamilies:[1]

Termitidae Latreille, 1802
Subfamily Apicotermitinae Grassé & Noirot, 1954 [1955] (synonym: Indotermitidae Roonwal & Sen Sarma in Roonwal, 1958)
Subfamily Cubitermitinae Weidner, 1956
Subfamily Foraminitermitinae Holmgren, 1912 (synonym: Pseudomicrotermitinae Holmgren, 1912)
Subfamily Macrotermitinae Kemner, 1934, nomen protectum [ICZN 2003] (synonyms: Acanthotermitinae Sjöstedt, 1926, nomen rejiciendum [ICZN 2003]; Odontotermitini Weidner, 1956
Subfamily Nasutitermitinae Hare, 1937
Subfamily Sphaerotermitinae Engel & Krishna, 2004a
Subfamily Syntermitinae Engel & Krishna, 2004a (synonym: Cornitermitinae Ensaf et al., 2004, nomen nudum)
Subfamily Termitinae Latreille, 1802 (synonyms: Microcerotermitinae Holmgren, 1910b; Amitermitinae Kemner, 1934 (disputed); Mirocapritermitinae Kemner, 1934; Mirotermitini Weidner, 1956; Capritermitini Weidner, 1956)
