Sexual dimorphism in the attachment ability of the Colorado potato beetle ... to rough substrates
By D. Voigt, J. M. Schuppert, S. Dattinger, and S.N. Gorb
Elsevier Ltd., 2008
Sexual dimorphism in the attachment ability of the Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) to rough substrates, Journal of Insect Physiology, Volume 54(5): 765-776, 2008.

L. decemlineata has myriad deformable setae on its tarsi which allow it to adhere to rough surfaces due to van der Waal's force. Deformation of the setae and adhesive secretions allow for a greater contact area, enhancing the bond.

Apparently the most complete overall reference on Trirhabda to date...it's often repeatedly cited in later publications referring to the genus.

Hard to access in libraries, but can be ordered from UMI/ProQuest (for "UMI Publication Number", use "7027230").
