Follow-up Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph spectroscopy of 64 candidates, representing 40 per cent of the complete photometric catalogue, confirms Wolf-Rayet signatures in 30 instances, corresponding to a 47 per cent success rate. 21 out of 22 statistically significant photometric sources are spectroscopically confirmed. Description: NGC 5068 has been imaged with the ESO VLT and Focal Reduced Low-dispersion Spectrograph #1 (FORS1) covering a field of view of 6.8x6.8arcmin2 with a plate scale of 0.25arcsec/pixel. Both broad- and narrow-band imaging were obtained on 2008 April 7 under program ID 081.B-0289 (P.I. Crowther). In addition, the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph (GMOS) on the Gemini-South telescope was used to obtain follow-up spectroscopy in 2009 March-April under program ID GS-2009A-Q-20 (P.I. Crowther). The R150 grating was placed at a central wavelength of 510 and 530nm with a dispersion of ∼3.5Å/pix. File Summary:

Note (1): Note as follows: Ex = Extended Cr = Crowded Ed = Edge of chip Bl = Blended with A24 Note (2): Where spectra have been obtained the derived E(B-V) is used. For those sources with no nebular lines an average E(B-V)=0.259mag is used. Note (3): Absolute magnitudes are derived using a distance of 5.45Mpc (Herrmann et al. 2008ApJ...683..630H). Note (4): The spectral classification determined from spectroscopy is listed along with the sources association with a HII region. Note (5): "Faint" implies nebular-like Hα emission, "bright" implies a more point source Hα emission while those in the brightest HII regions in NGC 5068 are referred to using ID numbers in Table 6.
