A small collection of chitons from South Africa was studied. Apart from new records of some rare species and bathymetrical range extensions for several of the more common species, the collection contained an undescribed Lepidozona species, L. debruini n. sp. The genus Lepidozona is most speciose in the northern Pacific. The present new species is the first recor for the coast of the African continent and the second Lepidozona species known exclusively from the Southern Hemisphere.
