Dear Bill:

I enjoyed your recent addition of aglajids to the Slug Forum; to continue with the thread, here is another image from Okinawa:

Bob, Thanks for the image. This species is a very strange one. I started to look at its anatomy some years ago but needed more specimens. Now I have at least one more I might have a look at it... Bill
