Molluscs of Tasmania

Haliotidae: Haliotis (Notohaliotis) coccoradiata Reeve, 1846 (‘reddish-rayed abalone’)

Synonym(s): coccoradiata Reeve, 1846.

Typical shell-length 70 mm. Lives subtidally under rocks and stones. Native. Endemic to eastern Australia (QLD, NSW, TAS and VIC). In Tasmanian waters, this species is currently known only from a single record (unverified by SG) from the N coast; however, it may refer to a different species since Tasmania is well beyond the normal range for this species.
