** UPDATE: March 14, 2021 **


 
Another update almost exclusively consisting of Stamperija material. I am seriously considering throwing in the towel, and stop buying these. This rubbish does not deserve being called 'stamps' and is just as bad as the fantasy labels purporting to be legal in former Soviet territories.
But I will admit that there are some interesting and even beautiful fossils among them.
The only serious issue is from Tajikistan, and depicts species found in the country.
As promised, I have also added catalogue numbers for many issues. While searching for these, I regrettably ran into inconsistencies, and I was not able to resolve all of these. There are definitely errors in the data for the Central African Republic.
New genera: Alethopteris, Androgynoceras, Armigatus, Argentavis, Collignoniceras, Dromornis, Galeocerdo, Gigantichthys, Gnathosaurus, Kansajsuchus, Latimeria, Lexovisaurus, Ophiacodon, Sclerocephalus, Sinraptor, Vorombe, Zhongyuansaurus,

** UPDATE: January 18, 2021 **


 
The first update for 2021. Regrettably, most new issues are more of the same by a now familiar stamp printing company. But there are depictions of some nice new genera.
I have removed the links to other websites after checking them. Two now featured 18+ / XXX rated images, one site did not work properly, and one did not have a link to my site anymore. M. Kogan's paleophilately site seems to be the only one still to be active. I intend to search the web for other sites to link to in the near future.
Thanks to the Covid pandemic, I have had the time to search for missing catalogue numbers (mainly Yvert & Tellier numbers), but these will have to wait until the next update.
New genera: Amphistium, Arambourgiania, Dalmanites, Euspira, Geosternbergia, Harpoceras, Lycoptera, Pedopenna, Purgatorius, Vampyronassa, Zhenyuanlong,

** UPDATE: September 13, 2020 **


 
Thanks to a fellow collector, I have been able to add data on a number of species of ammonites and other fossils.
The new issues are again mostly colourful but of little interest. The Hungarian and Russian issues are nice, fortunately. And with its 'jet' stamp, Spain brings us an organic material new to paleophilately.
New genera: Cadomites, Crotalocephalus, Deshayesites, Metridiochoerus, Parkinsonia,

** UPDATE: June 14, 2020 **


 
Stamperija again dominates this update, but it has to be said that some of the fossil issues are moderately interesting. Regrettably, I still have to find outthe name of some of the ammonites.
Slovenia presented us with a new fossil mammal stamp, and Spain has devoted a stamp to the human evolution museum at Burgos with a skull from Atapuerca on it.
I have added a (small) number of meter frankings to my collection and found illustrations of a few others.
A most people will know, Russia-backed pro-russian rebels seized control of the Ukrainian Crimea and Donetsk regions and established new countries. These are only recognized by Russia, most other countries, the UN and the UPU have condemned these actions. Nevertheless, a postal system has been set up, and stamps are being issued. One of the Donetsk region stamps shows the mounted skeleton of a mammoth.
In a similar vein, there also is an ammonite stamp from Abkhasia, with the incorrect title 'Abkhasia archaeology'.
Please remember that by buying these stamps, you indirectly support the illegal occupation of the areas.

** UPDATE: March 6, 2020 **


 
Another update dominated by Stamperija issues. Some of them quite ugly, others with familiar silly titles, pterosaurs are still not flying dinosaurs. I did managed to track down most names of the fossils shown together with volcanoes in the Sao Tome issue.
The only two items NOT produced by Stamperija are a new Benin overprint and the long-awaited Tyrannosaurus issue by the USPS.
New genera: Alanqa, Arizonasaurus, Caulkicephalus, Colpocoryphe, Euaspidoceras, Knightia, Terebratula, Vini,

** UPDATE: September 29, 2019 **


 
You may have noticed that this site has been offline for a while.
This was because of an unexpected change in the rates the hosting company charged me for hosting Stampedout. The monthly costs rose from one Euro to 10 Euros, so I decided to switch to a cheaper alternative.
Of course, this happened at a moment that I was busy with other things, so I did not manage to keep Stampedout on line.
One of the things I have been working on is the latest update. As usual, this is dominated by Stamperija issues, and it also features many new genera.
New genera: Anthracotherium, Archegosaurus, Ardipithecus, Ataxioceras, Bajadasaurus, Cameroceras, Castoroides, Ceratoichthys, Dipterus, Eromangasaurus, Euceratherium, Futalognkosaurus, Jaekelopterus, Kainops, Kelenken, Kyptoceras, Leonaspis, Mapusaurus, Sinopterus, Taniwhasaurus,

** UPDATE: May 19, 2019 **


 
Yet another update mainly consisting of more pictorial issues from familiar countries. Some of them are good, I will admit, with nice fossil stamps from Guinea-Bissau and from Togo. Stupid are the 'flying dinosaur' issues, and the prehistoric humans issue from Mozambique is downright ridiculous.
New genera: Antarctosaurus, Austroraptor, Besanosaurus, Bistahieversor, Brachyceratops, Citipati, Discoscaphites, Elrathia, Eoalulavis, Hokkaidornis, Huanhepterus, Hupehsuchus, Mioplosus, Walliserops, Zhejianopterus,

Another large update. Mostly business as usual, with loads and loads of colourful pictures issued for the familiar list of countries.
Fortunately, there are a few exceptions. An enormously large sheet from Belgium, and a very interesting sheet from Hungary, with endemic species new in philately.

** UPDATE: July 17, 2018 **


 
Only two months have past since the previous update, and not all that many new issues.
But I have decided to put this online now, rather than waiting for more. A number of new sets have been issued recently, and I have had problems in the past with keeping large updates well organized.
Apart from the new issues, I have been able to add Michel catalogue numbers for prolific countries like Guinea, Niger, and Togo.
New genera: Coronocephalus, Encrinus, Eusaurosphargis, Hippotherium, Mesolimulus, Mixopterus, Utahceratops,
 
New Issues:
Central African Republic (fossils)
Hungaria
Korea (North)
Mozambique ('flying dinosaurs')
Guinea-Bissau (St. Petersburg Museum)
Maldives (dinosaurs)
Mozambique (Museum Berlin)

** UPDATE: May 19, 2018 **


 
Less than two months, and already enough new issues for an update.
And with the exception of the Czech Republic stamp, only more colourful pictures from the same countries. I sometimes wonder if it is't high time to give up stamp collecting.
Perhaps the next update will be more interesting.
New genera: Albertonectes, Bramatherium, Edestus, Jamoytius, Pituriaspis, Psephoderma.
