Dictyotaceae

provided by wikipedia EN

Dictyotaceae is large family of brown algae (class Phaeophyceae).[1] Members of this order generally prefer warmer waters than other brown algae. One genus in this order is calcareous, Padina, the only calcareous member of this class.[2] Lobophera variegata (= Pocockiella varieagata) often presents a beautiful blue iridescence due to microscopic bacteria which live on the surface of the blades.
