Philatelic Lepidoptera




Many entomologists who are also philatelists are collectors of insects on stamps. These include bees and beehives, mosquitoes, dragonflies, a praying mantis, termitaria, and several beetles, but by far the greatest number are butterflies or moths. The 20-value set issued by Mozambique, and the four most recent Pro Juventude sets of Switzerland, all in full natural color, should do much to interest collectors in this special field. Fourteen stamp-issuing countries, from 1902 through 1953, have issued a total of ninety-nine stamps of forty-six different designs, showing forty-three species of butterflies, moths, or their caterpillars.
