An ash-black slug, Churchland Lane
The ash-black slug, Limax cinereoniger, is said to be the largest slug species in the world. The brown ridge on the back is characteristic. It often lives in ancient woodlands, or nearby, and feeds on lichens, algae and fungi. It is widespread in the British Isles but often uncommon. It is also known as the ash-grey slug and many are much paler than the one in the photo.
