Description:

I have to confess to some confusion here hence the delay in posting this. I think this is Arion ater, although it is not black, but it does have the bright orange frill to the foot. It seems that this species can be either orange or black. All corrections and guidance would be welcome.

Mark Thanks

Good site. Apparently the National Museum of Wales is preparing an ID guide for slugs.
