Abstract Trypanosome infection rate of Glossina morsitans submorsitans in Bahr El Arab fly belt, Sudan was investigated in four areas using fly rounds with screen and bait animals together with traps during the dry season February to May 1985. The overall infection rate of tests flies captured in the four areas was 5.1\%. The infection rate of vivax group trypanosomes comprised 64.7\% of total infections, congolense group 31.2\% and brucei group trypanosomes 3.9\%: 27.3\% of the vivax and 31.3\% of the congolense were immature trypanosome infections. Mixed trypanosome infections were encountered in a few flies. Trypanosome infection rate of flies differed with the sampling technique employed. A linear positive correlation existed between the physiological age of males and their trypanosome infection rates.
