[1]  Dimetrodon is not a dinosaur.
             According to stampedout:  The title 'Prehistoric Montserrat' on the miniature sheet is misleading, the island is geologically very recent.

  [2]  "Aquatic Dinosaurs" is a nonsense, Dinosaurs are terresial animals per definition. None of the aminals shown on the stamps is dinosaur:
  • Elasmosaurus  is a genus of plesiosaur with an extremely long neck that lived in the Late Cretaceous period (Campanian stage), 80.5 million years ago
  • Plesiosaurus    is a genus of extinct, large marine sauropterygian reptile that lived during the early part of the Jurassic Period  
  • Nothosaurus    is an extinct genus of sauropterygian reptile from the Triassic period, approximately 240-210 million years ago
  • Mosasaurus    is an extinct carnivorous aquatic lizards. It existed in the late Cretaceous period, between about 70 and 66 million years ago
