Johann Anton Weinmann (Russian: Иван Андреевич Вейнман; 23 December 1782, Würzburg - 5 August 1858, Pavlovsk) was a German botanist who served as Inspector of the Gardens in Saint Petersburg, Russia.[1] He published a Flora that is the basis of some binomial species identifications.

Beginning in 1803, he was head gardener of the newly established botanical garden in Dorpat; from 1823 he served as inspector of the garden of Empress Maria Fyodorovna in Pavlovsk near St. Petersburg.[2]

His name is commemorated with the mycological genera Weinmannioscyphus and Weinmannodora, the latter genus being circumscribed by Elias Magnus Fries in 1849.[3]
