Limax

Limax

Limax (literally "slug") is a genus of small, terrestrial, shell-less pulmonate snails native to Europe, and introduced into North America. Some species, especially the ones introduced into North America, are considered to be garden pests whenever they inhabit gardens, as they often injure plants by feeding on tender foliage.
