Do we know what is the wavelength of the color of pheomelanin?


Pheomelanin has a very broad absorption spectrum in the visible, with monotonically increasing absorption as the wavelength decreases until a maximum is reached at 300 nm.

I think that this would correspond to a dark red/brown colour.
