Abstract
In_the course of the dissection of some 1,50O Glossina morsitans, three examples of a nematode worm of the Mermis type has recently been found; their average length was 79 mm. These parasites were all found during the wet season, as were those noted by the Scientific Mission of Katanga (Rodhain et al., 1913). Similar worms of the Mermis type have also been recorded by Lloyd (1912)-again in the wet seasons-from G. morsitans in the Mpika area of Northern Rhodesia, 200-300 miles from Abercorn, and by Minchin· ... (Lloyd, 1912) and Carpenter (1912, 1913) from G. palpalis on Lake Victoria in Uganda.
