I saw this species last year around the same time and somewhat in the same area and again about a week back.
But it seems I find them after the slugs have gotten to them.
I think they’re more likely to pop up after a good rain.

Good luck with your search! Next time I find these guys I might use them in a dish…

Bingo!

Great find Matt! I have yet to spot one of these.
