Fossils on stamps of France 2018

Helminthoides Flysch on stamp of France 2018
 [1]  Booklet of 12 self adhesive stamps "Works of Nature".  
One of  the stamps "'Helminthoides Flysch" or "Helminthoid 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.

" 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.
