Thread subject: :: angled M-vein in Calyptratae

Posted by Carnifex on 23-08-2019 19:46

Don't know whether this has been investigated: What is the reason behind the conspicuous angle of the M vein that many Calyptrate species exhibit? Can this be associated with wing stability? Or certain flight abilities?
Just curious if anybody here heard of studies dealing with this question (or can come up with a suggestion)
