During one of the Mastermind competitions, the answer Petifog gave regarding abalones is incorrect. Abalones most definitely ARE molluscs (Phyllum mollusca). He goes on to say that they are instead a type of "marine snail" which is true, but ALL snails are molluscs (Class Gastropoda). Abalones are just in their own little family, Haliotidae, which has only 1 genus. See more
