Not as colourful as many of our other butterflies, but the Ruona Elfin depends on its camouflage for survival. It is marginally distributed in South Africa - Maputuland in KZN and the northern part of Limpopo province between Wolk- and Soutpansberg. This example was seen in Mapungubwe.

Don't you just love the names they have given these insects!? :lol:
