Brenton Blue Butterfly Reserve - a very rare National Treasure.
The Brenton blue butterfly, evident in late October until December, lives within one hectare of asteraceous coastal fynbos and its larvae depend entirely on the lower side of the leaves of Indigofera erecta for their food.
The home of one of the rarest butterflies in the world, the Brenton Blue Butterfly Reserve, is marked by a single signpost. Although the Brenton Blue Butterfly Reserve effectively came into being in early 1998, it was only proclaimed as a Special Nature Reserve on 4 July 2003. Knee-high poles indicate the boundary of the nature reserve. The site extends over approximately 2ha and contains a mixture of coastal fynbos and coastal forest. The Brenton Blue shares its home with a wide variety of other insects, as well as mammal and bird species.
The vegetation in the reserve is a complex mosaic of candlewood thickets and asteraceous fynbos. The reserve contains a large population of the food plant of the Brenton Blue butterfly, a small plant in the pea family with pink flowers.
