Christmas Island Botanical Postage Stamps

Date of issue: 30 April 1984
Designer: Ian Loe
Printer: Format International

Part of a series of five fungi stamps

Fungus: Phillipsia domingensis


No common name

This fungus is widespread in the tropics. The original description of the
species (in 1852) was based on a specimen collected in Santo Domingo,
in the Caribbean. That locality is the basis for the appearance of
'domingensis' in the Latin name.
