Hello everyone.

I'd like to know if Richard Owen was still a distinguished fellow of the Royal Society by 1858.
The information I have collected is controversial.
The RS website shows his being VP in 1849-1850 and 1857-1858 and receiving the Royal Medal 1846 and Copley Medal 1851.
However, other sources say in 1846 he was voted off the councils of the Zoological Society and the Royal Society on account of the Chaning Pearce scandal
about Owen's paper on belemnites.
The book The life of Richard Owen does not shed much light on this issue.
Could anyone give me more precise information?

Thanks
