    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This paper reexamines the taxonomic status of the dwarf-chameleon species,&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Bradypodion nemorale&lt;/em&gt;,&amp;nbsp;which was described from the indigenous forests of Nkandla and Qudeni north of the Tugela Valley (Raw, 1978). Since that time additional populations have been found at Entumeni Forest, Dlinza Forest, Eshowe and Ongoye Forest. While these have all been regarded as a single species (Branch, 1988, 1998) this paper shows that there are actually three distinct taxa in this area.&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Bradypodion nemorale&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;is therefore redescribed and diagnoses and descriptions are provided for the two new species,&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;B. nkandlae&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;n. sp. and&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;B. caeruleogula&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;n. sp.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
