New slug species to the UK fauna are usually 'alien' species that are introduced with imported plants. Ben Rowson and Bill Symondson (Cardiff University) recently found a species that was both new to the UK and new to science. This project will be developed so that we learn more about the Cardiff Ghost Slug and Shelled Slugs in Wales, as specimens arise, in partnership with Cardiff University.
