Magenta

The magenta color does not have its own wavelength. It's the product of combining red and blue light, which are on the opposite ends of the visible light spectrum, so our brains fill in the gap with what they think the color should be. So it is a biological artifact and doesn’t physically exist. Our brains are just telling us we are seeing "not green".
