An isolated new species of serpentiform dwarf burrowing skink closely related to Scelotes guentheri Boulenger 1887 and S. bourquini Broadley 1994, is described from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The current taxonomy of the genus in KwaZulu-Natal is considered. The relationship to these two related species as well as other species of Scelotes in the wider area is discussed.
