    Hello all, this set from Republic of China (Taiwan) depicting Starfish found in the coral reefs of Taiwan.

    Date of issue: 2017-01-05
    upload_2017-2-4_7-15-7.png
    The designs follow: 1. Fromia monilis (NT$5): This starfish’s central body and the tips of its arms are bright red or orange. The plates on its body’s surface form a mesh-like pattern. The individually distinguishable gills on its back are a characteristic feature. These starfish can sometimes be seen along the coasts of Hengchun, Penghu and Taiwan’s northeast.
    2. Culcita novaeguineae (NT$5): A large starfish has abbreviated arms and a body shaped like a flattened ball. The green ones are more common. It is a common starfish in all of Taiwan’s coral reefs.
    3. Acanthaster planci (NT$5): A large starfish that feeds on stony coral polyps, it is known as a “coral killer.” Its arms are covered with venomous thorn-like spines. Its body is largely blue-gray, whereas the area around its gills is bright red. It can be found in the waters of all of Taiwan’s coral reefs and outer islands.
    4.Linckia laevigata (NT5): The most common large starfish in Taiwan’s waters, it is largely blue, with arms that greatly resemble fingers ? hence its Chinese common name of “the blue-finger starfish.” It is common in the waters of Taiwan’s coral reefs and outer islands.

    Regards, James.

    Wow, some of these are so beautiful! My favourite type of stamps are ones that have some sort of animals on them so I've really enjoyed going through all the posts.

    My grandad has some local one's with fish on them.. I'll try take pictures when I visit him.

    My favourite ones are the mozambique ones though. The 1951's edition, anybody has any to show off? :)

    Thanks
    It is 1971, but I do not have other two from the series
    I collect only cancelled stamps and I am a newbie to the hobby as I collect them for only a couple of years

    I never really considered Topicals as something I'd seriously get into but when I see stamps like this, you know .... fish or trains or whatever on stamps, part of me says "Why Not?"
