Fernand Anatole Meunier (1868-1926)
Meunier, a Belgian entomologist who worked as curator at the Antwerpener Tiergartens, is renowned for his many articles dealing with insects in Baltic amber, especially material formerly in the Königsberg Museum in what is now Kaliningrad, Russia. Though he published most of his articles on Baltic amber insects, his paleontological work also dealt with compression fossils, including those from the Oligocene deposits in Rott. Meunier's taxonomy was not highly regarded by some, including his contemporary, Handlirsch, who wrote a scathing critique of some of Meunier's paleontological works (1906b). Types of Baltic amber material described by Meunier can be found in the Institut und Museum für Geologie und Paläontologie, Georg-August-Universität, Göttingen. Other of Meunier's amber types have been found in the Dzieduszycki Museum, Lviv, Ukraine.
