Two colonies of glossina pallidipes originating from the Shimba Hills and Nguruman, Kenya, were examined for their susceptibility to two strains of Trypanosoma congolense and for allele frequencies at eight polymorphic loci. These data were compared with data from earlier studies of these colonies. Overall, the two colonies of G. pallidipes were found to have lost, over 3-4 years, most of the genetic and trypanosome-susceptibility characteristics that originally distinguished them.
