  • The wings in different insect species are morphologically distinct with regards to their size, outer contour (margin) shape, venation, and pigmentation. [...] Key Result We showed that a variety of spatial distribution of the bending stiffness could reproduce diverse wing margin shapes. Moreover, the inference of the distribution of the bending stiffness from experimental images indicates a common spatial profile among insects tested.Expand Abstract
