Response Statement - Sheathed Slug

In Canada, this slug is confined to a small area in the Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, generally within 25 km of the Canada-U.S. border. Most records are from older shady coniferous forest stands ranging from approximately 50 to >200 years. The species often inhabits riparian areas and other very moist microsites. Threats include logging and wood harvesting, and projected consequences of climate change including an increase in drought condition and wildfires. A decline is projected in the area, extent, and quality of habitat. The low number of scattered subpopulations makes the species vulnerable to both natural and human disturbances.
