Thank you for asking about this difference in LED (Light Emitting Diodes) and UV (Ultraviolet) lights.

LED's are in the range of infrared, visible or near-ultraviolet, UV is ultraviolet including UVA, UVB and UVC, they fall in different areas of the light spectrum.

Here is a good graph explaining and showing the difference in the ranges This site is also one of the best there is about animals and UV lighting, so you might want to take a look at some of the other studies and articles on there.
