ventral scale count, if its under 200, its definately not Fuliginosus, if its over 228 its definately not capensis.
if its between 200 and 228 then it will be hard to tell.

the eye markings, the capensis and fuliginosus both have pair of eye markings, howeverer the line not running above the eye, the lower line only runs from eye to snout on capensis but goes pass eye on fuliginosus, this is the lower line not the upper line.

I will take pics to show you ok.
