Barlow's lark (Calendulauda barlowi) is a species of lark in the Alaudidae family.

It is found in Namibia and South Africa where its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The bird is sometimes regarded as a race of the Karoo lark (Certhilauda albescens barlowi).[2]

The common name and scientific name commemorate the South African businessman and conservationist Charles Sydney Barlow.[3]
