Change color of arrows in hierarchical lists in places and tools panel


Can anyone identify the open and close element/elements used in the hierarchical lists in the places and tools panel. And secondly, where I might go to change the their color. I prefer a light theme and the elements are rendered in white which makes no sense in a light color scheme. I have tried all the light color schemes and they all render the elements as white. I’ve included a screen shots of the elements in question for clarity. The screen shot shows the same area with both a dark and light theme. You can see the elements are colored for a dark theme and need to be changed for a light theme. Some light themes you can’t see them at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
