In excerpt “Wingspans range from just 20 millimeters (0.8 inches) in the damselfly Agriocnemis femina to 162 millimeters (6.5 inches) in the dragonfly Petalura ingesntissima (Grzimek et al. 2004), and up to 190 centimeters (7.5 inches)” the last measurement is wrong. It should read “191 milimeters”, not “190 centimeters”. The biggest insect ever had only about 75 centimeters wingspan, so this is quite a big difference.

Thank you, Gregory, for your comment.
Indeed that figure is incorrect – millimeters not centimeters!
That mistake will be corrected ASAP.
