- (bacterium): After British bacteriologist Harry de R. Morgan.
- (insect genus): Authored by Theodore Dru Alison Cockerell in 1897, after Albert C. F. Morgan, the entomologist who first described Morganella longispina, the type species of Morganella, as Aspidiotus longispina in 1889.
- (puffball fungus): After American botanist Andrew Price Morgan.
- (fossil brachiopod): Authored by R. G. McKellar in 1970. Named for the Mount Morgan district in Queensland, Australia, where the type species Morganella maxwelli was found. The mountain was named for the Morgan brothers (Frederick, Edwin and Thomas) who developed a gold mine in the mountain in the 1880s. The type species was named in honour of G. W. H. Maxwell, who discovered and described the shell originally.
