The lesser sand plover is a small wader in the plover family of birds. The spelling is commonly given as lesser sandplover, but the official British Ornithologists' Union spelling is "Lesser Sand Plover".

There are five races, and the large east Asian forms, ''C. m. mongolus'' and ''C. m. stegmanni'', are sometimes given specific status as Mongolian plover, ''Charadrius mongolus''. If the taxonomic split is accepted, lesser sand plover as then defined becomes ''Charadrius atrifrons'',.. more
