Dear Mani

Matt Taylor the creator of the LUCID technology for taxonomists and others has reminded me that there are LUCID keys to the slugs of the world.

His email is as follows:

FYI. You may want to mention there are two Lucid mollusc keys available:

https://keys.lucidcentral.org/keys/v3/freshwater_molluscs/

Using these the closest looking slug I could find was:

Laevicaulis alte

See: https://landsnails.org/en/Gallery/Veronicellidae

But I am no expert on slugs!

This is a member of the Veronicellidae, commonly known as leatherback slugs. There are three introduced species in Fiji and in this case Sarasinula plebeia, from tropical Central and South America.
