    Tsetse flies belong to the genus Glossina, of which there are about 25 currently recognized species. They are one of only a few groups of flies that give birth to live young. Adult tsetse flies are parasites that feed only on blood, which makes them potent disease vectors to mammals (e.g., humans and cattle) for a protozoan called Trypanosoma. The Fossil Book Study Guide Introduction Answer the questions in complete sentences. 1. What do paleontologists do? 2.

The first unambiguous fossil from the botfly family adds to the few known fossils of a major clade of flies (Calyptratae), shedding light on their rapid radiation during the Cenozoic Era.
