Booklet of 12 self adhesive stamps "Works of Nature". One of the stamps "'Helminthoides Flysch"
Helminthe are parasitic worms . The term helminth does not correspond to a specific zoological category.
"Helminthoides" or '"helminthoid" refers to a category of deep sea trace fossils with a characteristic tight meandering pattern. Traces of this sort are now placed in the several different ichnogenera including Nereites, Helmthinopsis, Helminthoida, etc.
"Flysch" refers to a kind of sedimentary rock succession deposited in deeper water settings adjacent to a rising mountain system.
So, 'Helminthoides Flysch' or 'Helminthoid Flysch' is a term for flysch deposits that contain (in certain beds) a specific assemblage of deep water trace fossils.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild and Claire has gained respect for these creatures she now makes her mission to save. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

[A1] These new definitive stamps are defined by the original designs of the 2014 Definitive Stamps that feature unique geo-attractions of the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark, and portray Ma Shi Chau, Yan Chau and Fa Shan.
At least one of these stamps can be consider as fossil fund place.
The rock formation at Ma Shi Chau contains a variety of fossils such as crinoids, brachipods, pteropods and corals. From these fossils, geologists have determined that the rock layers formed during the Permian peri od, about 270 million years before present. More info is here.

[A3] On April 24th post of Iceland issued a stamp "Eggert Olafsson 250th Anniversary"
Eggert Ólafsson (1726-1768) was a poet, a writer and a naturalist from Svefneyjar islands in the northwest of Iceland. He was one of the first advocates of the Enlightenment in Iceland.
Eggert studied natural sciences and various other subjects at the University of Copenhagen. He was a staunch nationalist and his writings, especially his poetry, burn with patriotic fervour.
Eggert is best known for his book on Iceland which he co-wrote with Bjarni Pálsson, one of his schoolmates in Copenhagen. This great two-volume work Reise igiennem Island (1772; Travels in Iceland), issued with support of Danish government four years after death Eggert Olafsson, of records a scientific and cultural survey he carried out in 1752–57, gives a comprehensive description of the country and its people and also reported fossilized leaves of 'birch, rowan, and willow … and many most similar to oaks' from the Surtarbrandsgil locality, Northwest Iceland.
One illustration of the book depicted on top-right corner of the stamp and shows three minerals: a- left) Gypsum, b-right) Zeolite. The third one c-middle top is Filegrans - steen (not clear on this moment, what kind of stone it is ), perhaps with some fossils of marine shells on it.

[A5] The Africa Museum is recognized worldwide for its rich, varied and scientifically valuable collections. The majority of its visitors are unaware of the size of this heritage as the permanent exhibition only has about 1% on display. The museum is known for its ethnographic objects, but its natural science collections, archives and photos are equally remarkable.
The vast majority of the objects come from the DR Congo and were collected during the colonial period. However, the museum's collections contain specimens from around the world, dating back 650 million years (for some of the fossils) to the present day.
The fossil collection has more than 18,000 specimens from Central Africa, collected through fieldwork or acquired through donations.
The collection is very diverse in terms of types of specimen (from the remains of large reptiles to microscopic skeletons of unicellular organisms) and in terms of age (approximately 650 million years to a few thousand years old).
Examples of large specimen series include: stromatolites from the Neoproterozoic (Lower Congo, Katanga, Kasaï) ; plant fossils from the Carboniferous-Permian (Katanga) ; fish fossils from the Jurassic-Cretaceous of the Congo Basin ; a diverse fauna from the Cretaceous-Cenozoic of the Atlantic coastal region (Lower Congo, Angola, Congo-Brazzaville, Gabon).
[A7] "The Art in Nature stamp issue illustrates the exquisite beauty found in our country's natural landforms, akin to art," Australia Post Philatelic Manager Michael Zsolt said. One of the stamps shows a landscape of Shark Bay.
Shark Bay, Western Australia: Located about half way up Western Australia's west coast, Shark Bay is a spectacular World Heritage–listed area that stretches along 1,500 kilometres of coastline. It includes several islands, white sand beaches, red cliffs and tranquil turquoise lagoons and is home to remarkable biological diversity and marine life. Showing the shifting sands of this coastal idyll, the photograph was taken on a Phase One IQ280 80 mega pixel camera by Christian Fletcher.
Shark Bay is also one of the few places where scientists can study modern stromatolites – a bacterial-sediment structure. Stromatolites make-up the majority of fossils from the Precambrian. The Bay is very hypersaline – which is likely why the stromatolites can grow into the larger structures. In other parts of the world, grazing snails, echinoids and other animals eat the bacterial mats faster than they accumulate – so we don’t see stromatolites except for in places where environmental conditions are too harsh for the grazers. Shark Bay is also a World Heritage Site (https://www.sharkbay.org).

[CA1] The postmark shows " Lindwurmbrunnen von Klagenfurt "
Legend has it that Klagenfurt was founded after a couple of brave men had slain the abominable "Lindwurm", a winged dragon in the moors adjoining the lake, the staple diet of which is said to have been virgins, but which did not spurn the fat bull on a chain that the men had mounted on a strong tower. The feat is commemorated by a grandiose 9-ton Renaissance monument in the city centre. Although it represents a dragon, it can be regarded as the first palaeontological reconstruction. The head of the statue is modeled on the skull of woolly rhinoceros : In 1335 the cranium of a wooly rhinoceros from the ice-age was found in a gravel pit near Klagenfurt. It was instantly interpreted as the skull of a dragon or Lindwurm. This fossil, which is still at exhibition at the Landesmuseum für Kärnten, served as a model for the head of the Lindwurm.
