I'm saying you decide what color is closest to your concept of magenta on the spectrum, and say that's he wavelength. But you might be asking a different question: is there some sort of standard definition of magenta? Then the best thing to do is use a Pantone color: Pantone has a large number of standardized colors.

I am alluding to the fact that magenta light is not monochromatic
