Abstract
Swynnerton (1923), working east of Mwanza, Tanganyika Territory, was the first observer to find pupae of the species which bears his name. They occurred under thickets, logs, and under the shelter of overhanging rocks. He wrote: "In its apparent partiality for thickets as a place of deposition, the fly would appear to resemble pallidipcs and differ from typical morsitans, for in the west of the territory at any rate, few morsitans pupae, but many pallidipes are found in these thickets, while under logs in the grass outside them the proportions are reversed. Under single rocks near Ngasamo as many as: 300 and 400 puparia were taken. The conditions were always dry."
