Charles Henry Dessalines d’Orbigny (1806 – 1876) was a French botanist and geologist specializing in French tertiary. He was the younger brother of the French naturalist and South American explorer Alcide d’Orbigny. In the National Natural History Museum in Paris, d’Orbigny identified many of the flowering plant species that returned to France from the natural history of his brother and collected journeys through South America. In 1867, his standard work, Dictionnaire universel d’histoire naturelle, published in Paris, was published by A. Pilon et cie.

The standard author abbreviation Orb. is used to designate this person as the author when quoting a botanical name.
