Three species of the genus Limea Bronn, 1831 (s. l.) occur in southern Africa. Two are descriptionbed as new: the shallow-water L. (Notolimea) drivasi, which ranges from eastern Transkei north to the Mas­carene Islands, and L. (N.) crenocostata, which is known only from the continental slope of western Transkei. The third species, Limea (Isolimea) limopsis (Nomura & Zinbo, 1934) was descriptionbed from Japan, and is here recorded from the continental shelf of Zululand south to western Transkei.
