Table 4 Distribution of the Trypanosoma species in Glossina species in the gut. Total number of Trypanosoma species detected

From: Molecular screening of tsetse flies and cattle reveal different Trypanosoma species including T. grayi and T. theileri in northern Cameroon

Study site Dodeo Alme Gamba Total
Glossina/Trypanosoma G. palpalis palpalis Glossina sp. G. morsitans submorsitans G. morsitans submorsitans G. tachinoides

  1. aPositive flies are those, in which one or more trypanosomal amplicons was detected. Therefore, the total number of positive flies is lower than the sum of Trypanosoma detected in a fly species at a given location
  2. bIf no identified amplicon was detected, the fly was considered to be negative, including presence of NI100
  3. cAmplicon of 100 bp detected and not identified. The corresponding sample was recorded as NI (non identified)
