... of ant lion ( Myrmeleon crudelis ) mandibles (65±21 rad s −1 ). Here, we hypothesize that elytra coupling may function as an energy storage mechanism that facilitates rapid opening by releasing elastic strain energy upon deployment. To test this hypothesis and better understand the biomechanics of elytra...
