The Florida sand skink is a species of lizard in the family Scincidae, the skinks. It is endemic to Florida in the United States.

Floridasandskink er en skink som bare finnes i et begrenset område i det sentrale Florida.

Den lever for det meste nedgravd i løs sand i områder med buskvegetasjon. Lemmer og øyne er tilbakedannet som en tilpasning til et underjordisk liv. Arten er så spesiell at den tidligere ble regnet til den monotypiske slekten Neoseps, men genetiske undersøkelser viser at den hører til midt i slekten Plestiodon.

Arten ble vitenskapelig beskrevet av norsk-amerikaneren Leonhard Hess Stejneger.
