By mark–release–recapture experiments, we assessed the density of loaisis vectors, Chrysops dimidiata Wulp plus some Chrysops silacea Austen (Diptera: Tabanidae) and estimated their range of flight in the secondary forest of southern Cameroon. In 1993, the release point was at the centre of the study area and recapture points were at 1100 m radius. In 1994, releases were on the periphery of the study area and recapture sites were 400–8000 m from the release points. Results were concordant and…

Potential vectors of loiasis and other tabanids on the island of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea
TLDR
The possibility of loiasis being endemic on Bioko contra‐indicates ivermectin treatment of onchocerciasis cases, due to risks of adverse side‐effects.
Dispersal capacity of Haematopota spp. and Stomoxys calcitrans using a mark–release–recapture approach in Belgium
TLDR
A distance of 150 m appears to be the minimum required for segregation to avoid the risk for mechanical transmission, but in areas of higher vector density, this should probably be increased.
Tabanidae (Insecta: Diptera) Fauna of Kırıkkale Province
The article presents the horsefly fauna (Diptera: Tabanidae) of the Kirikkale province, Turkey. During the active periods in 2019 and 2020 a total of 2908 horseflies representing 40 species and
The African Chrysops
African Chrysops are less studied than their European and American counterparts. The bionomics of only Chrysops silacea and Chrysops dimidiata is frequently reported. These two species feed on
Loa loa vectors Chrysops spp.: perspectives on research, distribution, bionomics, and implications for elimination of lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis
TLDR
This is the first comprehensive review of the major L. loa vectors for several decades providing insights into the potential for integrated vector management, with multiple diseases being targeted simultaneously, with shared human and financial resources and multiple impact.
DISTRIBUTION AND ZOOGEOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS OF THE HORSE FLIES (Diptera: Tabanidae) FROM GENERA Dasyrhamphis, Philipomyia, Atylotus AND Therioplectes IN CROATIA
TLDR
Systematic research into the distribution of t horse flies (Tabanidae) in Croatia was carried out in the period from 1992 to 2008, and zoogeographical analysis indicates that the Mediterranean species Dasyrhamphis anthracinus, DasyrHamphis ater, Dasyrsyrhampshis umbrinus and Therioplectes tunicatus were distributed in Croatia only in localities along the Adriatic Sea coast.
Horse flies (Diptera: Tabanidae) collected in Central African Republic, Gabon and Liberia with comments on their updated distribution
Abstract A zoogeographical review summarized the current distribution of 28 morphologically determined horse fly species recently collected in three Western Africa countries. In Malaise trap
Mapping the distribution of Loa loa in Cameroon in support of the African Programme for Onchocerciasis Control
TLDR
The model developed has proven very useful in defining the areas at risk of post-ivermectin Loa-related severe adverse events, and is now routinely used by APOC when projects of community-directed treatment with ivermECTin are examined.
Incompletely observed: niche estimation for six frequent European horsefly species (Diptera, Tabanoidea, Tabanidae)
TLDR
The results show that all six species have a wide range in Eurasia, have a broad climatic niche and can be considered as widespread generalists, which supports the assumption that the current state of tabanid monitoring and the recorded distribution significantly underestimates the actual distribution.
Potential vectors of loiasis and other tabanids on the island of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea
Abstract. The biting flies Chrysops dimidiatus Wulp and C.silaceus Austen(Diptera:Tabanidae),vectorsofLoaloa(Cobbold)(Nematoda:Onchocercidae)on the African mainland, were found to be widespread on

Chrysops silacea and C. dimidiata: fly densities and infection rates with Loa loa in the Chaillu mountains, Congo Republic.
TLDR
The density, infection rates with Loa loa, and parous rates of Chrysops silacea and C. dimidiata were studied in various ecological zones throughout the Chaillu mountains in the People's Republic of the Congo, indicating that the Chrysops populations were extremely stable in the rainy season.
Prevalences of Loa loa microfilaraemia throughout the area endemic for the infection.
TLDR
In the present review, the available data on Loa endemicity are detailed and maps showing the prevalence of Loa microfilaraemia throughout the area endemic for the infection are presented and it is possible to identify several areas, in south-eastern Nigeria, southern and central Cameroon, the south of the Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the north and west of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (ex-Zaire).

The study of the life-time risk of eyeworm, also conducted in the Pygmy and Bantu populations of another village, was shown to be useful in epidemiological evaluations.
Severe adverse reaction risks during mass treatment with ivermectin in loiasis-endemic areas.
TLDR
Studies concerning possible severe adverse reactions to ivermectin used to control onchocerciasis in areas where loiasis is also endemic, and precautions that may be advisable during the implementation of such programmes are outlined.

TLDR
Margaret Pinder shows that L. loa is an important human pathogen of considerable biological interest and should be studied in equal depth for pathogenic and protective immune mechanisms.
