When I'm trying to remember the Trypansoma bugs:

1) Trypansoma Cruzi - Chagas disease symptoms and cause:

"Tom Cruise is a huge ass (megacolon), who is pretty hard to swallow (megaesophagus), but he has a big heart (dilated cardiomyopathy) and he knows how to kiss red lips" (transmitted by Reduvid bug, aka kissing bug).

2) With TrypanSOMA gambiense & rhodesiense I visualise tripping over a sleeping SOMAlian (African sleeping sickness) with a big sore bite on his leg (painful Tsetse fly bite).

I don't really try to memorise the names of subspecies gambiense or rhodesiense as I figure if I know Cruzi / Chagas then then Sleeping sickness is the other two.
