The slug is the European Red Slug, Arion Rufus, though it is also found in NA. I found some in South San Francisco while looking for mushrooms in a nursery once about a year ago and brought them with the mushrooms to an MSSF meeting, but I think they probably hitched a ride on some imported plants.
