The dorsal surface structures have been examined with SEM in Dactylispa (Tr.) angulosa. Its pronotum is densely covered with pits which are irregular circles and have setaes. The setaes arise off the center of the pit floor, 60~80 μm long. There are regular spikes and pits which are in longitudinal arrangement, the pits are nearly circles and all have inner prominence. The setaes on the dorsal of these prominence are 57 μm long. These important microstructures show diversity in the evolution of…

Structural design inspired by beetle elytra and its mechanical properties
On the basis of the microstructure of the cross-section of a beetle’s elytra, three bio-inspired lightweight structures were designed and built from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene plastic with a
