Abstract. One of the most well studied Finsler metrics are the $(\alpha,
\beta)$-metrics. Among them, Randers, Kropina and Matsumoto metrics are well known brand names in modern Finsler geometry. Recently a lot of work has been done on the generalized m- Kropina and generalized Matsumoto metrics.

In [#!DH96!#,#!DH97!#,#!IMSH08!#] the $\mathcal{L}$-dual of Randers, Kropina and Matsumoto space were introduced. Recently, in [#!GS11!#], the $\mathcal{L}$-dual of a generalized m-Kropina space has been introduced. In this paper we study the $\mathcal{L}$-dual of a generalized Matsumoto space.
