The tsetse fly was an insect native to Africa on Earth.

In Data's Sherlock Holmes holoprogram, Countess Regina Barthalomew's mother was worried that her daughter might have been bitten by a tsetse fly on a safari with her uncle. (TNG: "Ship in a Bottle")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 527), the tsetse fly transmitted the African sleeping sickness.
