J.O. Westwood Medal for Excellence in Insect Taxonomy & Marsh Prize
The MCT previously partnered with the Royal Entomological Society to Award the J.O. Westwood Medal and Marsh Prize.
The J.O. Westwood Medal recognises the best comprehensive taxonomic work on a group of insects, or, related arthropods (including terrestrial and freshwater hexapods, myriapods, arachnids and their relatives). Typically, this will be a taxonomic revision or monograph. The Award was open to authors from any country who demonstrate the highest standards of descriptive taxonomy in the work nominated.
This Award is no longer run in partnership with the MCT and the Royal Entomological Society.
