Abstract
A description is be given of the more interesting features of a collection from ufipa and the kungwe-mahare highland areas on the east side of lake Tanganyika the forest avifauna proved to be of exceptional interest fourteen new forms being discovered on topographical grounds the kungwe –mahare avifauna would be expected to have rather stronger affinities with the highlands north of the malagarasi depression than with the ufipa highland on the south of the karema gap. But in fact northern affinities are so predominant on the kungwe as to indicate the karema gap as a major zoo geographical barrier. This agrees with the tendency of recent geological work to show that the karema gap represents a rift valley older than the Lake Tanganyika trough and running North West from rukwa
