Khutawyre Wegaf was an Egyptian king of the 13th Dynasty and he is known from several sources, including a stelae and statues. There is a general known from a scarab with the same name (Wegaf) who is perhaps identical with this king.

A king with the name Khutawyre appears in the Turin King List as first ruler of the 13th Dynasty. However, some researchers especially Kim Ryholt argue that the writer of the King list confused the name Khutawre with the name Sekhemre-Khutawy and they place Wegaf in the middle of the 13th Dynasty. Sekhemre Khutawy is regarded by Kim Ryholt as son of Amenemhat IV but this idea is not accepted by most Egyptologists.
