..., known as costal break, in their forewings. The flexible joint allows the wings to reversibly bend at this point during an induced collision and minimizes wing wear. Whereas the flexible microjoints prevent or reduce the risk of damage initiation, cross-veins (see Glossary) are likely to inhibit...

...Andrew M. Mountcastle; Stacey A. Combes The wings of many insects accumulate considerable wear and tear during their lifespan, and this irreversible structural damage can impose significant costs on insect flight performance and survivability. Wing wear in foraging bumblebees (and likely many other...
