Here are new colorful stamps from Falkland Islands featuring 4 varieties of mushrooms. It’s a beautiful set for those collecting stamps on Mushrooms.

30p False Chanterelle Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca

The False Chanterelle is a gilled boletoid which can easily be mistaken for the highly prized gourmet Chanterelle Cantharellus cibarius which has ridges instead of gills. Found in Britain, mainland Europe and North America it is fairly common in the Falkland Islands. A saprobic fungi it is generally found growing on acid grass-lands and heathland.

75p Red Wax Cap Hygrocybe sp

The genus Hygrocybe belongs to the family Hygrophoraceae in the order Agaricales. The name Hygrocybe means “watery head” and these fungi are so named because the cap is generally very moist often with a glossy appearance.

The Hygrophoraceae or the Wax Gill family contain some of the most striking and colourful mushrooms. The Wax Gills fall into two general groups, either brightly coloured as shown in this bright red species or white to dull-coloured. All have thick waxy gills which gives them their common name.

£1.00 Clustered Domecap Lyophyllum sp

One of the true mushrooms or toadstools this species from the family Lyophyllaceae in the order Agaricales was first described in 1818 by the Swedish mycologist Elias Magnus Fries. This species is found throughout Europe and in many other parts of the world.

£1.20 Shaggy Inkcap Coprinus comatus

The genetic name Coprinus meaning “dung” or “living on dung” which is true of many Ink Caps, but not particularly apt for this species which not only grows in large groups in dung enriched grasslands but also along verges and even on footpaths. The species is widespread in Britain, on mainland Europe, the Mediterranean and North America. In the Falklands it grows in isolated patches in grassland or wasteland and appears during late Autumn.

Dealers’ Meet at Mumbai

A dealers’  meet cum display was held at World Trade Center, Mumbai from 18th to 20th April. Despite of elections to be held on 24th, the event was  well attended by stamps and coins collectors and dealers. Good response was shown by the philatelists in buying stamps and other items from various dealers stalls. Both dealers and collectors were seen satisfied at the end of the show.

A special cover on Mahavir Jain was released during this event. A big  stall was put by the Dept of Posts having 5 to 6 staff members, attending to collectors and were seen compelling to buy the stamps. Whereas the response was not so overwhelming though they were having material since 2001 in their stock for sale.
