Malcolm Burr (6 July 1878 - 13 July 1954) was an English author, translator, entomologist, and geologist. He taught English at the School of Economics in Istanbul, and spent most of his life in Turkey.
He was a noted specialist of earwigs (Dermaptera) and crickets and grasshoppers (Orthoptera). He was the first to classify earwigs on the basis of copulatory organs, and the diversity and biology of the earwigs of Sri Lanka is well studied due to major contributions by Burr in 1901.
