Abstract
Let the southern and much larger area now be considered. The map shows that it is divided into eastern and western G. morsitans belt by the broad strip of tsetse-free country which runs approximately southwards from Dodoma to the head of Lake Nyasa. The western belt is very nearly a great island fly-belt, almost wholly confined to Tanganyika. Its north-west tip passes over the Uganda border, where it soon ends, and at the south-west at the southern end of Lake Tanganyika there is but a very narrow and tenuous connexion with the Abercorn belt of Northern Rhodesia. The eastern G. n:orsitans belt of Tanganyika is separated from all other belts in Tanganyika on three sides, but its southern border passes over into Portuguese East Africa on nearly a 400 mile front. How far this belt continues in Portuguese East Africa is uncertain. Even were cheap and easy means of reclamation available, how could these truly enormous areas 'of nearly 100,000 square miles each be tackled?
