William Stephen Atkinson

William Stephen Atkinson (1820 - 1876) was an Indian lepidopterist.

Atkinson lived for many years in Calcutta collecting and painting specimens. His collection was purchased on his death by William Chapman Hewitson and deposited with the Natural History Museum in London. Frederic Moore (1830-1907) described and published many of the new species collected by him.
