They belong to the family Haliotidae and the genus Haliotiswhich means sea ear, this referring to the flattened, and sometimes ear-shaped, form of the shell.
The postlarval shell teleoconch is laid down rapidly following metamorphosis with marked variation in the rate of its production between individuals. They graze amongst turf algae and inhabit the undersides of boulders and coral bommies.
The shell has a curved row of respiratory pores, rounded shell perforations overlying the respiratory cavity. Articles with ‘species’ microformats Commons category link is on Wikidata Use dmy dates from June Adult shell of Haliotis asinina.
