Arthur Gardiner Butler

Arthur Gardiner Butler (27 June 1844 in Chelsea, London – 28 May 1925 in Beckenham, Kent) was an English entomologist, arachnologist and ornithologist. He worked at the British Museum working on the taxonomy of birds, insects, and spiders.

He also published articles on spiders of Australia, the Galápagos, Madagascar, and other places.

At the British Museum, he was appointed as an officer with two roles, as an assistant-keeper in zoology and as an assistant-librarian in 1879.[1]
