Praying Mantis joints...

Hi. I'm trying to study the unique joints of the Praying Mantis (both the joint that allows it's head to swivel, as well as the double-joint connecting the coxa to the femur). However, I've scoured the internet for research papers and have only managed to find somewhat generalized information on arthropod joints (though Aaron Dollar's technical report on the subject was fascinating). Can anyone here point me in the right direction?

@Dries,
Roaches are very similar to mantis'. You may find these of interest.
