Description:

Found in woods off the path the other side of the river from the ski resort Kransjka Gora, Slovenia. No amount of surfing has helped put a name to this fat little slug so far. Can you help?

Stripey slug

Thanks to Tiggrx for the list which was very helpful. I think the slug is Limax cinereoniger which according to Wikipedia is the largest slug in the world growing up to 200mm. I think mine was trying to disguise its size but is the prettiest of these as the other pictures I have found on the web look rather grey by comparison. The closest to mine I found at
