This Botanicals page shows Fungi on stamps. Please see Botanicals by Country for general botanicals stamps, and Orchids and Roses, and Trees and Views, parks and gardens for the other themes.

Fungi on stamps are especially popular in Eastern Europe, where collecting edible fungi in winter is a popular hobby. There are also fungi here from Africa, North America, Asia, Australia, and other parts of Europe. Mycologists will find this collection fascinating, for a wide range of fungi have been depicted on stamps.

Most stamps shown here are postally used unless stated otherwise. The postally used stamps have been specially selected for light postmarks. The mint stamps are all unmounted, and CTO means stamped with a neat postmark for collectors.

I have a lot more fungi on stamps, so if you are looking to fill gaps in your collection, or would like to explore a particular theme, please email me c/o alisonlever@yahoo.co.uk.

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
