Experiments in the hybridisation of tsetse-flies (Glossina, Diptera) and the possibility of a new method of control.

F. L. Vanderplank,  Transactions of the Royal Entomological Society of London,  98:1-18. 1947.
Hybridisation of Glossina morsitans Westwood, G. swynnertoni Austen and G. pallidipes Austen was attempted in order to discover(a) Whether the three could be regarded as distinct species or as sub-species of morsitans ; (b) Whether they would mate freely with one another, and if ...

Tsetse hybrids

W. H. Potts,  Nature,  154:606-607. 1944.
IN 1936 I attempted to cross various species of tsetse (Glossina) with the idea that, should they hybridize readily, and should the resultant hybrids prove sterile, this might be tried as a measure of control. Corson had already, in 1932, obtained three offspring from crosses ...

Hybridization between Glossina Species and Suggested New Method for Control of Certain Species of Tsetse

F. L. Vanderplank,  Nature,  154:607-608. 1944.
Corson and Potts record crossing Glossina swynnertoni Aust. with G. morsitans Westwood. Corson crossed twelve female G. morsitans with male G. swynnertoni, of which only two females produced a total of three pupæ. All his females lived long enough for reproduction to take place. ...
