The Entomological Magazine is a publication devoted to entomology.

The Entomological Magazine was published between September 1832 and October 1838 by the Society of Entomologists of London. The editor was Edward Newman aided by Francis Walker.The work includes reviews of entomological literature, articles and systematic papers in which new species are described.Contributors include John Curtis, Edward Doubleday ("Communications on the Natural History of North America."), Alexander Henry Haliday (notably An essay on the classification of the parasitic Hymenoptera...of Britain which correspond with the Ichneumones minuti of Linnaeus), George Robert Waterhouse, John Obadiah Westwood, William John Swainson, Francis Walker ( notably Monographia Chalciditum ), George Thomas Rudd, William Edward Shuckard, James Charles Dale, James Francis Stephens and Frederick William Hope
