IF..THEN..ELIF conditions

I have inherited some code that I need to understand.

Ine of the conditions says:

if [ condition ]
then
  ..something..
elfif [condition -a condition ]
then
 ... something else ...
fi

I assume the -a means logical AND but I cant see that documented anywhere.
Can anyone confirm that please?
