Hi Matt :)

Not M. tenellus, i can see the colour has caused confusion here. What you have is a pale form of one of the larger Arionids.

Thanks Christian

I should have guessed as though there was woodland around, it wasn't exactly ancient woodland :)

I thought arion would show a clearer marked sole, but I see where you are coming from when I compare with yellow arion pics from the web (though I like to think mine is a particularly pale example ;) )

I'll put an arion sp ident against it.. Feel free to correct any identifictations directly in future..
