Cabbage Whites

A collection male (left) and female of cabbage white (Pieris rapae) butterflies photographed at human-visible and UV wavelengths. Though they look the same to us, creatures that can see UV light will notice that only the females reflect UV.

From our review on UV vision - Cronin & Bok, 2016: http://jeb.biologists.org/content/219/18/2790
