Species Details

Class: Phaeophyceae
Genus: Padina Adanson
Species: Padina pavonica
Authority: (Linnaeus) Thivy
Description: The frond is thin and leafy, flattish and entire when young, but often concave, or almost funnel shaped in mature specimens, with a lactiniate or irregularly lobed margin. The inner (or upper) surface is covered in a thin coating of slime, and the outer (or lower) surface is banded with zones of light brown, dark brown and olive green. Small, fine hairs form concentric lines, 3-5 mm apart, from the outer margin continuing down the outer (coloured) surface of the fronds.
   
Name History Adjective (Latin), peacock-like
Biogeography NE Atlantic (S Britain to Canary Is, W Africa); Mediterranean; Caribbean; W Pacific (Philippines), Pacific Is; Idian Ocean.
Uses and compounds

High anticoagulant activity has been reported for purified fucan sulphates from Padina pavonia (xylofucomannoglucuronan) (Hussein et al., 1980).
