    Here are loads of small yellow tip hermits, plus a few Blue eyed hermits.

    Only found one of these, Rather big, about 20mm, not hairy. Blue eye stalks, Yellow / orange feelers, small claws of both the same size. And it is not in my book.

    Calcinus morgani. More common the blue eyed hermit north of Richards Bay, not many south of Durbs.

    Thanks @Lord_Blackadder
    First time I found this one at Park Ryne.
    To what size do they grow about? Similar in size than Calcinus laevimanus?
