I appeal to you, O vast base of reader knowledge!

Today, I found a slug. A slug I have never seen before. A slug that looked almost like slick tree bark, or a boa constrictor, a lovely mottled reticulated pattern, gray and brown with darker patches along the back, and dark little antennae. He was about two inches long, relatively fat bodied, with no obvious shield-shaped thingy. He was a very pretty slug.

I decided that I must immediately identify this sluggy visitor, only to discover to my shock and dismay that E-Nature has no field guide to slugs! Nor could I locate one on-line! Generally any species I could name has an on-line guide, but all I could find were sea slugs, and my deck is not really that oceanic.

Anybody know where I can find the slug listings on-line, or can identify this cute, if presumably slimy and voracious visitor?
