On 1 August, An Post issued the latest in the Fauna & Flora series. This year the subject is Fungi.

Illustrated by Ian Loe, with typography by Steve Simpson, each of the four new stamps features a species of fungus found in Ireland: the Pink Waxcap (Hygrocybe calyptriformis), the Parasol (Macrolepiota procera), the Orange Birchbolete (Leccinum versipelle) and the Scarlet Elfcup (Sarcoscypha austriaca).

There are 2 x 55c se-tenant stamps and an 82c stamp available in this issue. Also available is a superb minisheet which features a 95c stamp and two First Day Covers.
