Two species of the genus Alebion have been recorded from sharks off the coast of southern Africa. The specimens were not fully described. The present work describes Alebion carchariae taken from Isurus oxyrhinchus taken near Cape Recife, South Africa. The new specimens bears some resemblance to the original description of Alebion carchariae and Alebion crassus, but differs from them significantly in especially the morphology of the genital segment.
