oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) catches and virus isolations from them in the Mukwadzi Valley, Zimbabwe
Large numbers of Culicoides midges were caught on ten days in March-May 1981 on a farm where African horse sickness occurred. Eleven species of Culicoides were recorded, among which C. imicola was abundant and both C. milnei and C. zuluensis were common. Bluetongue virus was isolated on four occasions, and a further eight unidentified virus isolations were made.
