Definitely some slugs at work

The bulb surely has bruised “craters” where something was eating it. The pattern doesn’t seem to follow what would be a missing shoulder, though. The bulb looks like it was pretty smooth to begin with.

of the bulb on a specimen of A. brunnescens. Note the staining around the edges of the slug (or snail) damage.
