Paul Matschie (11 August 1861 – 1926) was a German zoologist born in Brandenburg an der Havel.
He studied mathematics and natural sciences at the Universities of Halle and Berlin, afterwards working as an unpaid volunteer at the Berlin Zoological Museum under Jean Cabanis (1816-1906). In 1892 he was in charge of the department of mammals at the museum, later becoming a curator (1895), and in 1902 attaining the title of professor. In 1924 he was appointed second director at the museum.
Matschie's tree-kangaroo (Dendrolagus matschiei) and Matschie's galago (Galago matschiei) are two of the species that bear his name.
