Heinrich Hugo Karny (7 October 1886 – 7 August 1939) was an Austrian physician and entomologist who specialised in Thysanoptera and Orthoptera.

He was a friend of Lucien Chopard and they were regular correspondents during Karny’s medical work in the Dutch East Indies.[citation needed] Karny was born in Mödling and died in Kroisbach.


Karny’s collection is shared. Parts are in the Swedish Museum of Natural History (South Europe Orthoptera), other parts are in Buitenzorg Zoological Museum (Sumatra insects); National University of Singapore Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (insects from Mentawai Islands –shared with Buitenzorg); Steiermärkisches Landesmuseum Joanneum Graz (Gryllacridae); Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt (Thysanoptera) and the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna (Orthoptera especially from Malaya).[citation needed]
