Selaginella plana (Cakar ayam) is one of the ferns that grow widely in Indonesia and has been used by the community as food, ornamental plants and traditional medicines to treat wounds, respiratory infections, liver disorders, urinary tract infections, fractures, rheumatism, cancer and increase the body immunity. Research on the chemical constituents of this plant has not been widely reported. This study aimed to describe secondary metabolites from ethanol extract of S. plana and determine total flavonoid and total phenolic content. Secondary metabolites content was determined using phytochemical tests, total phenolic and total flavonoid content were determined using UV-Vis spectroscopy. The results showed that the ethanol extract of S. plana contained secondary metabolites of steroids, saponins, phenolics, flavonoids, alkaloids, and tannins. Based on the results of determination using the UV-Vis spectroscopy, it was known that the ethanol extract of S. plana has total flavonoid and a total phenolic content of 35.725 ± 0.110 mg QE/ g sample mass and 36.363 ± 0.143 mg GAE/ g dried extract, respectively.
