Arnold Lang (1855-1914) was a Swiss naturalist, a comparative anatomist and student of German biologist Ernst Haeckel.

In the autumn of 1891, a European fellowship for the best graduate in class enabled American experimental biologist Lilian Vaughan Morgan to go to Europe and study muscles in chitons at the University of Zurich with Arnold Lang. Norwegian biologist Kristine Bonnevie studied under Arnold Lang in Zürich in the years 1898-99. He also taught to philosopher Heinrich Schmidt.
