Francis Walker.

Francis Walker est un entomologiste britannique, né le 31 juillet 1809 à Southgate et mort le 5 octobre 1874 à Wanstead.

Walker est décrit comme « l’entomologiste le plus industrieux et producteur que la Grande-Bretagne n’a jamais produit » (Essig, 1931). Il voyage beaucoup et collecte de très nombreux spécimens pour le British Museum.

Parmi les 87 publications que l’on connaît de lui, il faut citer ses catalogues sur les orthoptères, les neuroptères, les homoptères, les diptères, les lépidoptères et les hyménoptères.
