Photopigments that allow for ultraviolet (UV) vision occur in numerous fish species. In several species that also reflect short wavelengths, there is an indication that UV cues are important in forms of social signaling including mate choice. The sailfin molly, Poecilia latipinna, is closely related to species that use UV-reflective structures in mate(More)
Many organisms use cues and signals beyond human sensitivity during social interactions. It is important to take into account how organisms perceive their worlds when trying to understand their behavior and ecology. Sensitivity to the ultraviolet spectrum (UV; 300 - 400 nm) is found across multiple genera of birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and even(More)
