Date of issue: March 26th, 1999
Name of issue: Fauna de America Central
                         (Fauna of Central America)
Number of arachnid related stamps in issue: 2/26

The first spider stamp reads "Tarantula", the drawing looks like a Lycosidae, which would make sense since the true tarantula is a Lycosidae. The second one reads "Arana Cazadora" (hunting spider, special thanks to Patricio Cavallo), it looks like some kind of wandering spider as the name would imply.
