Hibiscus tiliaceus l. is a species of flowering tree in the mallow family, Malvaceae, that is native to the Old World tropics. It has many different common names, but the Tahitian name for it is Purau, and it is also called mahoe on Tahiti. Here is an image of an airmail stamp depicting a mahoe flower, designed by Pierrette Lambert, printed by lithogravure, and issued for use in French Polynesia on September 15, 1977, Scott No. C150.

The moorish idol (Zanclus cornutus) ("Crowned Scythe"), is a small marine fish species, the sole extant representative of the family Zanclidae (from the Greek zagkios, "oblique") in order Perciform. A common inhabitant of tropical to subtropical reefs and lagoons, the moorish idol is notable for its wide distribution throughout the Indo-Pacific. Here is an image of a postage due stamp depicting a moorish idol, designed and engraved by Gilbert Aufschneider, printed by typography, and issued for use in Wallis and Futuna Islands on April 1, 1963, Scott No. J37, SG No. D24.

Cynical, since you didn't specify wether the species had to be living or
extinct here is some prehistoric life.

Also some of the species names are derived partly from Greek names
such as the Stromatolites primitive algae.

Paradoxides davidis
Trilobites

Opabinia regalis Soft invertebrate

Eurypterus remipes
Sea scorpion

Scott/Unitrade 1279 - 1282



Note the engravers name in the selvedge. Not exactly Ives Baril's
best work but at least he finally got some recognition albeit
not on the stamp.

Litho: I've spent many enjoyable hours walking the limestone shorelines of the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island looking at wave-washed fossils in the rock. The names of all the bays float through my mind. Mind you - the Latin names have long-since slipped away. They are sort of like old phone numbers - you have to let them go to make room for something else.

fifia - You're welcome. Thanks for posting the nice Monaco flower stamps designed by Pierrette Lambert, too. I'm a huge fan of her artwork.

Here are image of two stamps in a set designed by Swedish nature artist and illustrator Staffan Ullström (1949- ), printed by lithogravure, and issued by Åland Islands on January 2, 2002, Scott Nos. 193 & 198, Facit Nos. 199 & 200.

I have enjoyed looking at the stamps on this post. I think my favorite are the ones with the pinecones from China and the berries from Faroe Islands posted by fifia. Oh by the way, fifia, I think those mushrooms stamps you posted are from Bulgaria.

A small shrub called Crowberry (Empetrum nigrum) is native to the northern-most parts of the northern hemisphere (i.e., circum-polar) and, oddly enough, on the Falkland Islands in the southern hemisphere. Canada and the US placed it on stamps but without the Latin binomial. I have stamp images of it from the web for both Iceland and the Faroe Islands with the latin name but they are too small to show the stamp in detail. Can someone place images of either or both on here that is of an appropriate size or from any other country for that matter?

The black crowberry is found in northern parts of Canada, as a small bush. Its fruit was dried or frozen by the Inuit and Indians, and mixed with other berries. Tea could also be made from the twigs. The stamp has mountains and lake in background.

Some tropical fruits from Cameroon:

Grapefruit Citrus grandis, Papay Carica papaya, Coconut Cocos nucifera, Mango Mangifera indica, and Pineapple Ananas sativa




And a much less exotic (for me) image, the very Mediterranean cypress, Cupressus sempervirens
