Gonionotophis capensis (Smith, 1847) 

Material

Mt. Mabu ( PEM R21152, male, 965 mm SVL + 160 mm TL; PEM R21153, female, 993 mm SVL + 143 mm TL).

Comments

Two specimens were collected on the same night (15 November 2014) from the same locality near a stream at the base of Mt. Mabu. It is possible that the male was following the female, as they were collected minutes apart.
