Could the elusive physicist(s?) have been J.G. Kingsolver and M.A.R. Koehl,
in  Evolution, 39, 488 (1985)?  I think their article was  also described in
_On the Origin of Insect Wings_Science, Vol. 230. 10/25/85 and critiqued by
S.J. Gould in _Not Necessarily a Wing_Natural History, 10/85. I even seem to
recall that Kingsolver's work was based on earlier work by P. Whalley
(1978-79?).
