Thomas Vere Hodgson (1864–1926) was a biologist aboard H.M.S. Discovery during the Discovery Expedition of 1901–1904, known by the nickname Muggins. He pursued his interest in marine biology initially in his spare time, but eventually found work at the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth. He worked on the collections from the Southern Cross Expedition, before joining the Discovery expedition as one of its oldest members, at 37. The post of naturalist had previously been offered to William Speirs Bruce, who declined, preferring to travel on the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition. Hodgson's work on the Discovery provided the first descriptions of deep sea floor communities in the Antarctic.
