A number of records of Limicola falcinullus (Pontopp.) are reported from the South West African coast. The first records date from November 1964. Two specimens have been collected, both apparently of the nominate race from northern Europe. Mensural data are given and identification, habitat, habits and moult in winter quarters are discussed.
