German entomologist who specialised in Coleoptera (beetles), and wrote (initially with the Stuttgart professor Dr Gustav Jäger) Käferbuch, Naturgeschichte der Käfer Europas, a 666-page work with 50 lithographic plates all but two in colour. This very popular work was successively reprinted until 1916. Many of the fine plates were reused in Georgij Georgiewitsch Jacobson's 1905 Beetles of Russia, enabling Jacobson to focus on illustrating previously undescribed species.
Carl Gustav Calwer died on 19 August 1874 at age 52 in Mineralbad Berg.
