Large black slug (Arion ater)

Not a particularly large specimen but definitely a black slug. Quite a lot of them around enjoying the rain on Sunday morning. I'm aware of some controversy regarding ID of black slugs but as this one was found in Scotland am I reasonably safe in identifying it as Arion ater?
