JKA has pretty much listed all the morphs of the capensis off the top of my head. Incidentally, I need to modify the latin names on that thread. Thought I'd already done that.
One more - T-Snow B. capensis:

It is a nice list, lovely snakes! I want a brown house snake, just do not have space and doubt my mom will allow a 4th snake for now :D

The bug-eyes must've slipped through, but mentalis not being recognized as a species makes things kinda tricky.

@Mitton: olivaceus are know as olive house snakes and forest house snakes.

If we're going for all the species - I had presumed all Oanalitis wanted was the morphs of capensis?

The 'Browns'.
Boaedon capensis - Cape House Snake
Boaedon fuliginosus - Brown House Snake
Boaedon geometricus - Seychelles House Snake (Technically also still Lamprophis but will be moved to Boaedon I am 100% Certain.)
Boaedon lineatus - Striped House Snake
Boaedon maculatus - Dotted House Snake
Boaedon mentalis - Namibian Large-Eyed House Snake
Boaedon olivaceus - Olive House Snake
Boaedon virgatus - Hallowell's House Snake
Boaedon sp. - São Tomé House Snake (Undescribed, will undoubtedly be a Boaedon sp.)
Boaedon sp. - Príncipe House Snake (Also undescribed, will undoubtedly be a Boaedon sp.)

All the others.
Hormonotus modestus - Ugandan House Snake
Inyoka swazicus - Swazi House Snake / Swazi Rock Snake
Lamprophis abyssinicus - Abyssinian House Snake
Lamprophis aurora - Aurora House Snake
Lamprophis erlangeri - Ethiopian House Snake
Lamprophis fiskii - Fisk's House Snake
Lamprophis fuscus - Yellow-Bellied House snake
Lamprophis guttatus - Spotted House Snake
Lycodonomoprhus inornatus - South African Olive house Snake / Olive Water Snake

Apologies - I have images on my hard drive of all of these species save the B. virgatus but most of them are not mine!

Thought so, just that the Forest looks so different.

See here, very different.

Mitton, it's the eye, the olivaceus eyes are typically orangey red on a dark green/black/brown background with no pattern save the eye stripes - and many lack even these as in the example you provided.

B. fuliginosus are naturally patternless - patternless B. capensis are a naturally occurring morph.
