It's in the family Tritoniidae, maybe a Tritonia or Marionia, but I haven't been able to find a good match. Hopefully Marli will come along before long & educate us both! :rolleyes:

Hi all,
I agree with Leslie, but specifics are difficult. I thought it may be Marionia rubra, but the usual markings don't seem to be there. There is a similar one on the Slug Forum as Marionia sp. 3:

There are also another that appears similar here:

Nothing definitive; sorry!
