New Records for the Tsetse, Glossina Pallidipes Austen, from Southern Sudan

  • W. F. Snow
Research Article


Glossina pallidipes was recorded from two widely separated areas in southern Sudan, far from any previously known localities: west of Torit, Eastern Equatoria Province and around Yambio, Western Equatoria Province. These records are discussed in relation to the local habitat and associated tsetse species; and it is suggested that G. pallidipes may be becoming more common and widespread in the region.
