During zoea II (2-day-old larvae), the peduncle has 2 segments, with some plumose setae
on the articulations and distal region of the segments (Fig.

Besides these characters, differences exist also in the shape of the base of anal point, shape and number of setae
of the inferior volsella, gonostylus, AR and LR.

Puthoff found that softer, more deformable setae
could explain the gecko's improved attachment at high humidity.

Using an atomic-force microscope, Dhinojwala and his colleagues measured just how powerfully adhesive their synthetic invention was, compared with gecko setae
