A very small ear-shaped shell, sometimes mistaken for a Haliotis, but it lacks the row of holes on the shoulder. Smooth surface, and vividly coloured.
Found under stones intertidally. The animal is very active. When disturbed it sheds part of its foot.
This bundle of frills is an animal of Gena impertusa, with it’s mantle extended, hurrying off to the underside of the stone.
