  • Six river systems in Kenya were found to harbor Simulium damnosum Theobald s.l. Two CDC light traps, during 12-h overnight collections at the Isiukhu and Nzoia rivers, caught 3 and 116 adult S. damnosum s.l., respectively. Searches for aquatic stages of S. damnosum s.l. in the 9 river systems produced 15 species of Simulium. Simulium damnosum s.l. is reported here for the 1st time from the Lusumu (0°19′N, 34°35′E) and Nzoia (0°35′N, 34°48′E) rivers.
