Apart from the studies carried out by Goodier (1963, 1966, 1967) on the distribution and seasonal incidence of Tabanidae in Rhodesia, only Cookson (1967), working in the Vumba mountains, has written on this topic in the Rhodesian context. The present study was conducted at Rekomitjie (16ï¿½ 10'S 29ï¿½ 25'E altitude 503 m) which lies in the Zambezi Valley, about 80 km downstream of the Kariba dam in Rhodesia.
