|Contribution||Observed and recorded what were probably parasitic protozoa, in gut of horse-fly.|
|Notes||Letter (in Dutch) of 12 November, 1680; published in part, in English, in 1681; see Dobell, 1932. The organisms were probably trypanosomes in a vector tabanid fly. This appears to be the first record of a parasitic protozoon.|
