Lemuria is the name of a hypothetical "lost land" variously located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The concept of Lemuria has been rendered obsolete by modern understanding of plate tectonics. However, it has still been used as a location and inspiration in a wide range of novels, television shows, films and music. Notable examples are listed here.
