This is an interesting cinquefoil species because of its strong visual pollinating guides, which are even stronger displayed in UV. However, although the general flower patterns are similar, the UV marks are not identically located to the visual clues. Probably this species is visited by a wide variety of pollinators, sp needs to have several guide options covering UV and visual ranges.
