On August 12, 1999 Singapore issued a set of 4, sheet format butterfly stamps and a souvenir sheet (S.G. MS1003) with the 4 stamps. Differing from the 22c (local rate) stamp of the souvenir sheet, the low value sheet stamp is inscribed "FOR LOCAL ADDRESSES ONLY".

The joint issue, Swedish booklet stamps of a very similar design are shown on page 10 of this thread.

Finland May 9, 2008. Set of 3 native moths as first class rate, self-adhesive stamps.

Interestingly, each stamp has a clear, highly reflective coating which gives a half silhouette of the moth as seen from above.

tau emperor (Aglia tau)
elephant hawk (Deilephila Elenor)
garden tiger (Arctic Caja)
