Iceland (2005)

Date of issue: April 14th, 2005
Number of arachnid related stamps in issue: 1/2

There were several issues of these similar looking stamps. They were issued in pairs every year. But only 2005 and 2009 had an arachnid portrayed. That is why I did not bother getting the others, which are different issues (even if they belong to the same group of stamps).

The full sheet of this 2005 stamp is quite interesting as it has four spiders in the gutter.

Michel #: 1093
Scott #: 1043
Yvert #: 1022
order: Araneae
family: Araneidae
Araneus diadematus Clerck, 1757
