I'm no tourney professional so take my suggestions however you'd like!

HQ:

Flyrant w/ TL devourers and HC is a solid choice.

Swarmlord w/ 2 Tyrant Guard is good IF you can footslog them across the board and get them into assault. You can free up a lot of points and add some flexibility to your army if you replace with another Flyrant with the same load out as the first.

Troops:
I'm pretty sure that 240 pts gets you 30 termies (120 pts @ 4 pts/model) w/ 20 devourers (4 pts/model). Looks like you may be cheating yourself a bit.

If you free up some of your points, the Thorax biomorph is a nice addition to the Tervigon for only 10 points. Give you a nice Wall of Death attack if it gets assaulted.

Elites
Good choice for anti-armor here. No real complaints but if you free up some points you may want to consider upping this to a brood of 3 (more Warp blast attacks and durability) and upgrading one to a Neurothrope.

Fast Attack:
Love Hive Crones. Keep this as is!

Heavy Support:
Are you running all three Carnifexes in a brood? You'll roll fewer times for Instinctive behavior this way but if you keep them separate, then Instinctive Behavior doesn't really matter because they'll just charge the enemy instead of attacking each other. Really a preference call. If you can afford the points, putting twin-linked devourers w/ brain leech worms on these make them VERY versatile!

Exocrine is great but it doesn't seem to me that it fits with this load out. Most everything else will want to push forward whereas this one unit will want to hang back. Might make it vulnerable to deep striking enemies.
