Per Brinck

Per Simon Valdemar Brinck (1919 –2013) was a Swedish zoologist.
He began his career as a veterinarian but wrote a thesis on Plecoptera (stoneflies) and later became a worldwide authority on Gyrinidae (water beetles). He travelled extensively to Africa and Southeast Asia, among others co-publishing the fifteen-volume South African Animal Life between 1955 and 1973.
The genera Perbrinckia (a genus of freshwater crabs) has been named after him.
