Romfilatelia continues the series of postage stamps issues dedicated to Fauna and introduces into circulation, on Wednesday, August 31st this year, an issue registered as a philatelic premiere theme entitled Fantasies of the Fauna.
The issue consists of four stamps, four minisheets, a First Day Cover and a special philatelic folder.
We invite you to discover stamps with rare images of insects in an interesting disguise through a special issue for collectors by the fact that it also addresses a double theme – Flora and Fauna.
Pink orchid mantis (Hymenopus coronatus), featured as a variety of colours on the stamps with the face values of Lei 4 and Lei 10.50 and on the First Day Cover, is a species of mantis native to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia.
Dead leaf mantis (Deroplatys truncata), illustrated on the stamp with the face value of Lei 6.50, is a species of mantis, also native to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia.
Jewelled flower mantis (Creobroter gemmatus), rendered on the stamp with the face value of Lei 10, is a species of mantis native to Asia.
Romfilatelia brings thanks to the specialists from the “Grigore Antipa” National Museum of Natural History and Mr. Alexandru Pintilioaie, entomologist specialist, for the documentary support granted to the development of this postage stamps issue.
The philatelic issue will be available starting Wednesday, 31th of August, in Romfilatelia’s shops network in Bucharest, Bacau, Brasov, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi and Timisoara and online on https://romfilatelia.ro/store/.
