Abstract
Bruce et al. (1914, 1915) induced infected flies to salivate on to cover-slips. The smears of saliva were immediately fixed and stained with Giemsa's stain. In this way they obtained preparations of both metacydic and/or other developmental forms of Trypanosoma simiae, T. brucei vel rhodesiense, T. pecorum and T. caprae. No record is known to the writer of this technique having been used by any other worker.
