Alderney Beetles stamps

February 20th, 2013

As part of its invertebrates series Alderney Post featured on new stamps some of the beetles which can be found in Alderney, which have been wonderfully illustrated by renowned international artist Petula Stone.

Alderney boasts a great number of beetles thanks to the Island’s incredible range of habitats in a very concentrated area.

The current stamps feature only several of them: Rose Chafer (Cetonia aurata), Burying Beetle (Nicrophorus genus), Green Tiger Beetle (Cicindela campestris), May Bug or Cockchafer (Melolontha melolontha), Netocia maria and Oil Beetle (Meloe genus).
