This paper is based on an investigation, during the past two years, into the tree-hole breeding mosquitoes at Livingstone in Northern Rhodesia with particular reference to the endoparasites of the larvae. As a thorough survey is being carried out in northern Barotseland, where yellow fever has been suspected (1943), the present writer submits these observations in the hope that his work in this part of the Zambesi valley may be of assistance to investigators in other areas.
