The Lammergeier, or Bearded Vulture (Gypaetus barbatus aureus) eats mainly carrion and lives and breeds on crags in high mountains in southern Europe, North Africa, Southern Africa. This stamp was designed by naturalist, author and illustrator Patrick Suiro, combined engraved by Georges Bétemps and photogravure, and issued by France on September 22, 1984, Scott No. 1938, Y&T No. 2337. Note: According to legend, the Greek playwright Aeschylus was killed when a tortoise was dropped on his head by a Lammergeier which mistook the his bald pate for a stone.

In reference to my crowberry (Empetrum nigrum) post (p.3) I am placing below a somewhat small web image of it (2006 Iceland Scott#1082).

Was wondering if there are other examples that are similar to Nethryk's fantastic Bearded Vulture stamp that show the identifying features of the particular species?

cynical - Glad you liked my alluring vulture. There are three more stamps in this set, but unfortunately I only have an example of one of them in my collection to share here:

The Short-toed Snake Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. Here is an image of a stamp depicting one, also designed by Patrick Suiro, combined engraved by Georges Bétemps and photogravure, and issued by France on September 22, 1984, Scott No. 1939, Y&T No. 2338.

The stamp is from the Federated States of Micronesia which is basically the island group labelled as the Caroline Islands in the map above.

Some posters seem to have drifted away from the original purpose of this thread, which was to include the Latin names in the text, in order to facilitate future searches in the database.

Does anyone have a Scott number for Fifa's Poland Pinus strobus stamp (p.1)? All I could find was that it was issued in 1991. This pine occurs in Canada also (we call it White Pine) and I think we issued a stamp for it but without the Latin name.
