A limb or appendage that a person feels is there, even though it's not. This usually has something to do with your brain thinking a preveously existing limb is still there, which is why phantom limbs are usually experienced by amputees. Many therians also experience phantom limbs of tails, wings, etc.
That person has phantom limbs.
