Notes:
Helminthoides Flysch on stamp of France 2018
 [1]  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.

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.
