Nine Lichtenstein's hartebeest (Alcelaphus lichtensteini) were sampled for nasal bots (Oestrinae) in a woodland area of central western Zambia. Larvae of the genera Gedoelstia, Oestrus and Kirkioestrus were found in mixed infestations in the nasal cavities and paranasal sinuses. A maximum count of 252 larvae was recorded from one head but no obvious pathogenicity was detectable in this or any other hartebeest. The significance of these findings is discussed in relation to the host specificity… 
Nasal botflies of migrating wildebeest from western Zambia
TLDR
A migratory population of wildebeest in Liuwa Plain National Park in the Western Province of Zambia was sampled for nasal bots during 1975–78 with no obvious pathogenicity attributable to these oestrids, all of which were judged to be multivoltine in this habitat.
Second stage larvae of nasal botflies (Oestridae) from African antelopes
TLDR
A key is provided to second stage larvae of the nine species of Oestrinae known to infest the nasal passages of African antelopes and the use of posterior spiracles for the recognition of these larvae is discussed together with a consideration of their possible biological significance.
THE TICKS OF LOCHINVAR NATIONAL PARK , ZAMBIA ( ACARINA : IXODIDAE ) PART 1
TLDR
During a study of the health of some of the wild animals at Lochinvar National Park in Zambia, an opportunity presented itself to study the ticks which are usually found on these animals and which may act as vectors of parasites and diseases.
Epizootiology of the reindeer nose bot fly, Cephenemyia trompe (Modeer) (Diptera: Oestridae), in reindeer, Rangifer tarandus (L.), in Norway
First-instar larvae of the reindeer nose bot fly, Cephenemyia trompe (Modeer) (Diptera: Oestridae), were sampled with a rinsing and sieving technique from 571 semidomesticated reindeer, Rangifer
Epidemiology of Oestrus ovis infestations in sheep in Kars province of north-eastern Turkey
TLDR
The prevalence of nasal myiasis caused by Oestrus ovis larvae in sheep of Kars province of north-eastern part of Turkey was 54.3% in spring, 41% in summer, 28% in fall, and 38.9% in winter.
The prevalence of ovine oestrosis ( Oestrus ovis Linnaeus , 1761 , Diptera : Oestridae ) and risk factors in Eastern Turkey
TLDR
Estimation of the prevalence, larval burden and some risk factors of ovine oestrosis in 328 heads of randomly selected sheep slaughtered in one year at Van, eastern Turkey found sheep with dark head color had a higher risk than sheep with white and spotted heads.
A description of the immature stages of Kirkioestrus minutus (Rodhain & Bequaert, 1915) (Diptera: Oestridae), and the life cycle and seasonal prevalence of this fly in blue wildebeest.
TLDR
Of 55 blue wildebeest examined in the Kruger National Park all but two 1-month-old and one 2- month-old animals were infested, and it is suggested that blesbok may not be suitable hosts of this fly.

TLDR
It was suggested by Basson (1963) that the foramina in the cribriform plate serve as gateways to the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses and the subdural cavity is practically never infested.
