...M. Burrows ABSTRACT High-speed videos were used to analyse whether and how adults of a winged species of scorpion fly (Mecoptera, Panorpa communis ) jump and determine whether they use the same mechanism as that of the only other mecopteran known to jump, the wingless snow flea, Boreus hyemalis...

Jumping Flying Kinematics High-speed imaging Escape movements Biomechanics Three different strategies are used by a wide diversity of insects to launch a take-off from the ground and into the air. First, rapid movements of the legs propel jumping to achieve take-off, without any contribution...

... long hind legs. Second, the fly Hydrophorus alboflorens requires a power output that is higher than could be produced by direct contractions of the small leg muscles, but a catapult mechanism is not implicated. Instead, jumps of this fly from the surface of water are produced by the propulsive...
