Abstract

Evidence for the presence of the native philomycid slugs Philomycus carolinianus (Carolina Mantleslug) and Megapallifera mutabilis (Changeable Mantleslug) in Wisconsin is given through data on body length, external morphology, traits of the jaw, color pattern, genital morphology, and comparison to the known distribution data for members of the genera. These are the first published records from Wisconsin for these two species.
