European black slug

Asked October 8, 2015, 9:55 AM EDT

hello, I am a professional gardener. I recently found a very large slug that I believe is s European black slug. I have never seen one here before. I'm wondering if you have any interest in this slug. Are they common in Colorado?

To find the most appropriate individual to answer your question, what county in Colorado do you live? Thanks! Ruth

This slug was found in arapahoe county very close to the Denver county line.

To find out if CSU is interested in this particular slug, I would recommend contact Dr. Whitney Cranshaw Whitney.Cranshaw@Colostate.edu. He would be the Professor at CSU that might be interested if this is the European Black Slug.
