Here we go!

All imaged illegals are in the order listed in UPU Circular 30 page 14 through 16.

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and as color proof sets as well.
Most times now (2016) the souvenir sheet sets and sheetlet sets are sold individually. Many times the stamps have been removed from the sheetlets and souvenir sheets. All of these "tactics" are used to avoid detection by UPU circular descriptions.

FLORA (Orchids) and Butterflies

The first sheetlet described in the UPU Circular seems not to exist! A sheetlet of nine stamps depicting orchids. I did find a sheetlet of six stamps featuring orchids which is not described in the circular but is of the exact same style as other illegal stamp sheetlets for other topics. So I am displaying it in place of the sheetlet described in the circular.
