Friedrich Weber (3 August 1781 – 21 March 1823) was a German entomologist.[1] He was a pupil of Johan Christian Fabricius (1745–1808), and wrote Nomenclator entomologicus in 1795 at the age of 14 and Observationes entomologicae in 1801.[1] These two works contained the first descriptions of many new insect species and also first descriptions of other invertebrates like the lobster genus Homarus.
