The eastern clapper lark (Mirafra fasciolata) is a small passerine bird which breeds in southern Africa. It derives its name from the wing clapping which forms part of its display flight. This species and the Cape clapper lark were formerly considered conspecific. Fry, Keith and Urban, in The Birds of Africa, regard this species and the Cape clapper lark as forming a superspecies with M. rufocinnamomea, the flappet lark, which is found further north.
