Response Statement - Pygmy Slug
In Canada, this small slug is confined to the moist forests of the northern Columbia basin of British Columbia. It is found in moist mixed-wood and coniferous forests and commonly associated with riparian habitats along small creeks. Key habitat requirements include high substrate moisture with abundant woody debris and leaf litter for shelter. Threats include: existing and new roads resulting in fragmentation, increased edge effects, and barriers to dispersal; predation and competition from invasive species; damage to riparian areas associated with livestock grazing; habitat loss and degradation associated with logging activities; and, projected consequences of climate change, including an increase in drought conditions and an increase in both the number and severity of wildfires.
