There is a local expert called Mervyn Mansel who can do the ID for you. Just submit the photo to the virtual museum website under the lacewing map (http://vmus.adu.org.za/).

Fanie Cape dwarf chameleon and juvenile
Cape dwarf chameleon and juvenile commented on by Fanie Western Cape, South Africa7 years ago

I am 100% confident that the juvenile is a Cape dwarf chameleon. This is the only chameleon species that has ever been recorded in this particular nature reserve in surveys that started in the 1970's.

Looks like a mountain sandman (Spialia spio). The white mark at the edge of the fore wing near the base of the wing is diagnostic. With these little skippers try to get photo of underside as well to help with ID.

Altha

The forest and blotched leopards only fly on the eastern side of SA. The common leopard is more widespread but this is a good find as they are rarity for the northern cape.
