During his long years of conducting a biological survey of Sagami Bay, among the specimens Emperor Showa focused on in his research were two species of the family Clathrozonidae (Coelenterata, Hydrozoa), namely Clathrozoon Wilsoni and Pseudoclathrozoon cryptolarioides.
The medal of the International Prize for Biology is designed in a motif taken from a segment of a Pseudoclathrozoon cryptolarioides colony, and is made of a unique Japanese alloy called Shibuichi (composed of copper, silver and gold), with the patterns upon it being inlaid in gold.
