Alexander Henry Haliday

Alexander Henry Haliday, o Enrico Alessandro Haliday o Alexis Heinrich Haliday (Holywood, 21 novembre 1807Lucca, 1870), è stato un entomologo irlandese. È principalmente noto per i suoi studi su Imenotteri, Ditteri e Tisanotteri, ma lavorò su tutti gli ordini di insetti e vari ambiti dell'entomologia.

Amico d'infanzia di Robert Templeton, divise la sua vita fra l'Irlanda e la città di Lucca. Con alcuni entomologi, tra cui Camillo Rondani e Adolfo Targioni Tozzetti, ha promosso la fondazione della Società Entomologica Italiana. È stato membro della Royal Irish Academy, della Belfast Natural History Society e della Royal Entomological Society of London (già Entomological Society of London).

Con Hermann Loew, Haliday è stato uno dei più insigni ditterologi del XIX secolo e uno dei più illustri entomologi britannici. I suoi contributi si sono sviluppati in quattro ambiti: nella descrizione dei taxa, nella tassonomia di rango alto, nella sinonimia e nella biologia. Ha istituito diversi taxa di alto rango, come ad esempio l'ordine dei Thysanoptera e le famiglie Mymaridae e Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera). La corrispondenza tra Haliday ed entomologi britannici e continentali è conservata nella libreria della Royal Entomological Society e nella Hope Department Library del Museo di Storia Naturale dell'Università di Oxford. Haliday riposa nel Cimitero inglese di Bagni di Lucca, in una tomba con una lunga iscrizione latina in suo onore.
