The dark stripes on the body-whorl tend to be continuous, narrower than the paler interstices, and at an oblique angle.
However, some forms are difficult to distinguish from Austrocochlea.
Austrocochlea porcata lives intertidally amongst rocks and seaweed, especially on moderately exposed shores.
This species is an algae grazer.
