Charles des Moulins, full name Charles Robert Alexandre des Moulins (13 March 1798 – 23 December 1875) was a French naturalist, a botanist and malacologist. He was a member of several learned societies, including the Société linnéenne de Bordeaux, of which he served as its president in 1826. Taxa Moulins named and described numerous species of snails, for example:
In turn, in recognition of his services to malacology, a number of species of mollusks were named after him. These latter species included both fossil and recent, both bivalves and gastropods and were mainly non-marine species, however, a few were marine species. Examples as follows:
Pisania desmoulinsi Montrouzier, 1864 , a marine gastropod
Anodonta desmoulinsiana Locard, 1882 , a freshwater bivalve
Nerita desmoulinsiana Dautzenberg & Bouge, 1933, a marine
Moulins also named various species of plants, including:
The botanical genus Moulinsia (family Sapindaceae) was named in his honor by Jacques Cambessèdes. The standard author abbreviation Des Moul. is used to indicate this person as the author when citing a botanical name. Bibliography
