The linguliformean brachiopod Lingula sp. was found in the intertidal flats of Hiroshima Prefecture, Western Japan, and is briefly described here. Another linguliformean brachiopod Discradisca sp. was also collected from the Shiwaku Islands area in the Seto Inland Sea. These brachiopods are endangered all over Japan and designated as nearly extinct species by five prefectures of Western Japan. Accurate identification and official occurrence records of these shallow-water brachiopods are required for their conservation.
