Jean Baptiste Édouard Verreaux (1810–1868) was a French naturalist, collector and dealer. He was the brother of Jules Verreaux (1807-1873).[1]

In 1830 Verreaux travelled to South Africa to help his brother pack up a large consignment of specimens. He returned in 1832 before continuing to Sumatra, Java, the Philippines and Indo-China. In 1834 he took control of the family’s natural history business in Paris.
