I took a picture of a white slug this morning on my walkway……is it an Albino Slug or someone suggested it was a Ghost Slug, but what I’ve read, they live in Europe and I’m in Virginia.

Dear Susan,
There is not enough detail in your image to check off the characteristics of the Ghost Slug, a species found in Europe.  We just posted another request for the identification of a White Slug found in Maryland, and we concluded it was not a Ghost Slug.  We will be postdating your request to go live while we are away from the office in June.

  2. I saw one last night on my patio I live in Whittier, CA. This morning, my daughter found it at the bottom of our hot tub. Really gross looking thing. No antennae, black line down the bottom of it, and completely white everywhere else. Did not remind me of a slug but was very goopy slimy and had the shape of a slug.

  3. I personally have never seen a white slug before, but I have kept slugs as pets. I would say it’s either the species of slug you mentioned or an albino slug which would be rare. it’s very cool that you saw one. I’m jealous. Lol
