Type species
This is the type species (holotype) of the genus Padina.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Fucus pavonicus Linnaeus

Adjective (Latin), peacock-like (Stearn 1973).

Homotypic Synonym(s)
Fucus pavonicus Linnaeus 1753

Heterotypic Synonym(s)
Fucus pavonius Linnaeus 1759
Ulva pavonia (Linnaeus) Linnaeus 1767
Dictyota pavonia (Linnaeus) J.V.Lamouroux 1809
Dictyota pavonia var. elongata J.V.Lamouroux 1809
Dictyota pavonia var. maxima J.V.Lamouroux 1809

Nomenclatural notes
Silva, Basson & Moe (1996, p. 606) consider Fucus pavonius Linnaeus (1759: 1345) an illegimate substitute name for Fucus pavonicus Linnaeus (1753: 1162); others have concluded that the two are orthographic variants. We have followed Silva and his colleagues (Guiry, pers. comm.). See Silva, Basson & Moe (1996) regarding orthographica variants of the specific epithet (Guiry, 1997).

Taxonomic notes
There is only a single confirmed Irish record (Cullinane 1970) from the outer reaches of Cork Harbour, where the species has not since been found.

Distributional notes
"See the general comment in Price et al. (1978) for the doubt concerning the occurrence of Padina pavonica on West African shores." (John et al., 2004).

General environment
This is a marine species.
