Frederick Polydore Nodder (fl. 1770 – c. 1800) was an English flora and fauna illustrator, a copperplate engraver and a miniature painter.

Nodder illustrated George Shaw's periodical The Naturalist's Miscellany. He also helped Joseph Banks prepare the Banks' Florilegium and converted most of Sydney Parkinson's Australian plant drawings from the HMS Endeavour expedition into paintings and helped engrave them for publication. There are Nodder drawings and paintings of Australian birds and butterflies in the Natural History Division of the National Museum of Ireland.[1]
