Tsetse flies include all the species in the genus Glossina, which are placed in their own family, tsetse are obligate parasites that live by feeding Class: Insecta. Conversely, Glossina palpalis is the main vector of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense, the causative agent of African trypanosomiasis in humans, whereas Glossina morsitans is not (7, 15).

Tsetse flies harbor three different symbionts, among which Sodalis glossinidius (1, 4, 5) is considered to be involved in vector competence and to favor the Cited by:   Cytological maps have been prepared, and a detailed description is presented of all major markers in the polytene chromosomes of the tsetse fly Glossina morsitans morsitans, an important vector of African trypanosomiases.

CrossRef; Google ScholarCited by: Glossina species are tan or brown flies, ranging in length from 6 to 14 mm, excluding the proboscis (tubular mouthpart in invertebrates used for feeding).Members of the fusca group are the largest ( mm).

The palpalis and the morsitans group species are small to medium in size ( mm). Tsetse adults are characterised by several distinctive morphological features. Abstract.

The Glossinidae, or tsetse-flies, form a monogeneric family of the Diptera. The adults range in length from 6 to 14 mm and in all the 23 known species are various shades of brown — ranging from light yellowish brown to dark blackish by:   Hu C, Aksoy S.

They have been studied a lot because they can spread sleeping sickness and other diseases. The genus Glossina has about 34 species in three groups of species. One group of species lives out on the savannah; another Class: Insecta. Full text of "A handbook of the tsetse-flies " See other formats.

Tsetses are found abundantly in forests and along the edges of lakes and rivers in central Africa. The adult flies, which are about cm (about 1 in) long, are brown above and brown with yellow stripes or spots below.

11 species have been recorded: Glossina morsitans submorsitans, G. longi-palpis, G. palpalis palpalis, G. tachinoides, G. pallicera pallicera, G. caliginea, G. fabaniformis, G. nigrofusca nigrofusca, G.

Tsetse flies compose a family of their own, Glossinidae, which is placed within the Hippoboscoidea due to the morphological and reproductive similarities of tsetse flies to keds and other hippoboscid flies (McAlpine, ).

Recent estimates show that over 60 million people living in some foci are at risk of contracting the disease, with aboutnew cases occurring annually (WHO.

Further confound-ing the issue is the related question of whether autonomous control will effectively render tsetse-borne trypanosomiasis an increasingly unimportant problem (Bourne et al.

Sleeping sickness, transmitted by G. palpalis, is known to be present in the Ivory Coast. palpalis has recently been reported to occur in several places within the town of Abidjan, including: (i) the Banco forest, (ii) the Abobo Adjamé University campus and (iii) the zoological park.

Two species of tsetse fly were present: Glossina pallidipes Austen and G.

Because tsetse flies are the only vectors of pathogenic African trypanosomes, they are a potent and constant threat to humans and livestock over much of sub-Saharan Africa.
