Émile Maupas (born 2 July 1842 in Vaudry, died 18 October 1916 in Algiers) was a French librarian, zoologist and botanist.

A student at the École des chartes, he later worked as an archivist (from 1867). In 1890 he was named at the Bibliothèque nationale d'Alger.[1] He was a correspondent member of the Académie des Sciences.[2]

Maupas first described Caenorhabditis elegans in 1900 and isolated it from soil in Algeria.[3] The annelid genus Maupasia is named after him, as is the ascarid genus Maupasiella [4] (synonym Maupasina Seurat, 1913).[5]
