Whatever the mechanism (a more competent immune system or a lower probability of encountering an infected tabanid
fly), dominant males do exhibit a lower prevalence of infection.
Larval and pupal descriptions, habitats, and life histories are still undocumented for several tabanid
They found that striping is highly associated with several consecutive months of ideal conditions for tabanid
vectors of the arterial nematode, Elaeophora schneideri, in southwestern Montana.
Once a month, tabanid
collection on a horse was conducted continually from 9:00 a.
While the tabanid
flies we captured at one site in the northern mountains clearly act as pollinators, they do not have sufficiently long proboscides to account for the evolution of spurs up to 72 mm in length in some populations in this region.

Field isolates from tabanid
fly guts were screened, cloned by multiple liquid dilution cloning and/or sero-cloned, re-screened, and deformation tested to produce serological profiles.

This preliminary study reports the first isolations of tabanid
associated spiroplasmas from South America.
Further research is necessary to elucidate the role that ringtail possums, small mammals, ticks, tabanid
flies, and mosquitoes prevalent in this unique location might play as natural reservoirs for and vectors of F.
