oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Notes on Diptera collected in Tanganyika

Volume 28, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The great majority of the specimens recorded were collected in Western Tanganyika during surveys of agricultural pests. The collecting of Diptera was never the primary object of the work, so the following is a summary of casual records. Ukiriguru is the Agricultural Research Station for Western Tanganyika and collecting was carried on throughout the year; a mercury-vapour lamp was also operated and some of the Diptera taken were recorded. Most of the collecting at other localities was done on short visits, or short stays by assistants during the growing season from December to July. All localities are shown on the map.
