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
TLDR
The aims of the chapter are to provide the reader with the state-of-the-art knowledge on African Chrysops, and to present the gap in knowledge of this genus species.
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
TLDR
Information contained in the principal publication The Catalogue of the Diptera of the Afrotropical Region 1980 is complemented by newly published studies on horse flies in Sub-Saharan Africa.
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
TLDR
The possibility of loiasis being endemic on Biokocontra-indicatesivermectintreatment of onchocerciasiscases,duetorisk sofadverseside-effects, and ivermectin treatment is contra-indicated, since severe and occasionally fatal reactions, involving the central nervous system, mayoccurif patients haveconcomitant Loaloainfection.

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).
