Former subfamilies of the group long known as Arionidae
are treated as full families, separating old world arionids from western North American endemics, which are placed in 3 different families.
Single records for other alien invasive species encountered in the past three years were Hedgehog Slug Arion intermedius (Normand) (Arionidae

Numerous individuals of the shell-less pulmonates Anion ater (Arionidae

These water contents are similar to those reported by Machin (1975) for Arion ater L., Arionidae
(87.5% and 86.3%) and by Prior et al.
Laznik and Trdan (2016) reported that hydrated lime and wood ash could be used to form a barrier and provide some protection of leaf tissue from herbivory by Arion slugs (Gastropoda: Arionidae
Muller, 1774) (Agrolimacidae); dusky arion, Arion subfuscus (Draparnaud, 1805) (Arionidae
); and Carolina mantleslug, Philomycus carolinianus (Bosc, 1802)] were evaluated.
