Lemuria is the name of a hypothetical "lost land" variously located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

The concept's 19th century origins lie in attempts to account for discontinuities in biogeography; however, the concept of Lemuria has been rendered obsolete by modern theories of plate tectonics. Although sunken continents do exist like Zealandia in the Pacific and the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian Ocean there is no known geological formation under the Indian or Pacific Oceans that corresponds to the hypothetical Lemuria.

Though Lemuria is no longer considered a valid scientific hypothesis, it has been adopted by writers involved in the occult, such as H.P. Lovecraft, or C. A. Smith.
