El with tail (Ӆ ӆ; italics: Ӆ ӆ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. Its form is derived from the Cyrillic letter el (Л л) by adding a tail to the right leg.

El with tail is used in the alphabets of the Itelmen language and Kildin Sami language, where it is located between ⟨Л⟩ and ⟨М⟩. This letter represents the voiceless alveolar lateral fricative /ɬ/, like the pronunciation of ⟨ll⟩ in the Welsh language.

In Khanty language, it is used to substitute the Ӆ as Ԯ, /ɬ/.
