Biodiversity has been studied by many specialists and is the same as the terminology “biological diversity” with more than 1.8 million species with Latin name (Scientific name). The insects as a big group have between 751.000 to 950.000 species . Recently, with molecular characterization, some groups get a different point of view [2-4]. This biodiversity could be found by orders  in the real world and in the cultural world like stamps . Insects in stamps have been studied by many scientists around the world, with different points of view. This aspect is one of the ethnoentomological studies and is called Entomophilately. In the last years, many studies related to insects biodiversity in stamps has been published principally on Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, in some cases, in some minority groups and special species as some Coleoptera from caves [6-17]. Most of these works were related to biodiversity richness and are important to reflect the cultural significance of countries to show to other parts of the world.
From a formal education point of view, postage stamps have been used to inform the teaching of entomology .
This little note has the intention to awaken the intellectual curiosity of entomologists or the general public who may be interested in the study of insects, their diversity, and their significance, in postage stamps. (This work was written in times of pandemic when could be appropriated. In the middle, an interesting work appears about this theme .
