White light scattering cells in the flexible skin of cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) are described. How the structure and composition of leucophores serve as passive reflectors approximating optical properties of a broadband Lambertian surface is investigated. The cuttlefish system may provide a template for bio-inspired approaches to efficient light scattering in materials science and optical engineering.
