In early March, the Royal Society announced the convening of an expert panel to identify the significance of NZ's national taxonomic collections, review the guidance of national collections and to review taxonomic training in NZ. The Entomological Society of New Zealand has offered to assist the Royal Society in providing a commentary on the state of entomological taxonomy in New Zealand, and supplying case studies showing the importance of taxonomy. An overview of the Society's input to the panel will be presented; and discussion on additions to the report will be encouraged.
