Note: Now that fossils of a number of Anomalocaris-like organisms have been found, a proposed classification splits these in a number of genera.
The Canadian species on the Gambia and the Sierra Leone issues is renamed
Laggania cambria,
The Chinese species on the Chinese stamp is named Anomalocaris saron,
A. nathorsti has been transferred to its own genus Peytoia.
