Abstract

The paper presents data on the distribution of Arion vulgaris Moquin-Tandon, 1855 in Latvia. This study shows that the involvement of citizens in science activities markedly help collect data on species distribution. The involvement of citizens resulted in the registration of 94 new localities of Spanish slug in Latvia between 2016 and 2020. In Latvia, species mainly occur in anthropogenic habitats, but also invade natural habitats.
