A Field Key To The Slugs Of The British Isles Mollusca: Pulmonata

(Note that this key is now superceded by the 2014 FSC key to slugs.) Keys, notes and illustrations are provided to assist in the identification of the slugs of the British Isles in the field. External features only are used as characters, and where dissection is necessary or desirable this is clearly slated, and the user referred to other works. A systematic list and glossary are included.

Good to have access to this key, but it needs to be used with caution - slug taxonomy has changed quite a lot since 1983, and several new species have been added to the British list (some of them now common and widespread). Ideally this should be used alongside the magnificent 2014 FSC key to slugs (http://www.field-studies-council.org/publications/pubs/slugs-of-britain-...).
