    While there are over 30 species of tsetse flies, almost all of these species live in sub-Saharan Africa. Together, tsetse flies exist in over 10 million km 2 and span over 37 countries. Tsetse flies thrive in an optimum temperature of 27° C, and even though some species inhabit the same ecological niche, these species coexist since vary in the times they reproduce and are abundant. Tsetse (/ˈsiːtsi/ SEET-see, US: /ˈtsiːtsi/ TSEET-see or UK: /ˈtsɛtsi/ TSET-see), sometimes spelled tzetze and also known as tik-tik flies, are large biting flies that inhabit much of tropical Africa. Tsetse flies include all the species in the genus Glossina, which are placed in their own family, : Insecta.

    Tsetse flies are arranged taxonomically and ecologically into three groups: the fusca, or forest, group (subgenus Austenina); the morsitans, or savanna, group (subgenus Glossina); and the palpalis, or riverine, group (subgenus Nemorhina).The medically important species and subspecies belong to the morsitans and palpalis groups. Two of the most significant vectors of sleeping sickness are. Erich Schmutzhard, Raimund Helbok, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Trypanosoma brucei (gambiense or rhodesiense) Tsetse flies are the sole vectors of T. brucei species. Both subspecies differ with respect to geographical occurrence, subspecies of tsetse flies, the environment in which these vectors may abound and, in particular, with.
