Snail and Slug

I would be more inclined to go with Arianta arbustorum for the snail and Arion subfuscus/fuscus for the slug.

Regards Chris...

I agree with Chris

The chocolate flecks and brown band on keel are very typical of Arianta. Also agree with provisional slug ID too.

Amend the identification

Hi both,

Could I suggest that you amend the identification otherwise we'll be left with an incorrect one!
