Blue-grey Taildropper ID Guide Available Now!

Update: A new, graphically improved and (slightly) revised version of the Blue-grey Taildropper ID Guide is now available!  There have been some small changes to content as well to improve results.

Little is known about the habits and habitat of the diminutive Blue-grey Taildropper.  In order to better steward this endangered species, HAT needs the help of keen eyed naturalists and nature-lovers to find out where these slugs are.  Unfortunately, accurately identifying this seldom-seen slug can be difficult.  But now help is on the way!
