New Zealand (1997)

Date of issue: October 1st, 1997
Name of issue: Creepy Crawlies
Number of arachnid related stamps in issue: 1/10

This series comes in a booklet of self adhesive stamps. A very nice series with great looking artwork. I really like when countries show endemic fauna and not just some random spiders from other countries. Of interest, it contains the only Onychophora (velvet worm) stamp I know of.

Michel #: 1636
Scott #: 1467
Yvert #: 1569
