This measures about 4 inch. It remains under the moist leaves and comes out at night. If we turn it upside down it can roll back and move. Two similar species I could find, but not in India, are Black-velvet Leatherleaf (Belocaulus angustipes (Heynemann, 1885) and http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/128...

Currently we are removing them manually. We are not alarmed and not heard our neighbors complaining.But I'm curious if this could lead to any bad situation. . Are these an invasive species? My people say that they never encountered these before. Our plantations are spices (famous place for cardamom) so far the slugs are feasting only on our kitchen garden for household purpose.
Thank you Sujith for commenting and sad for that infestation. How do you remove it? By sprinkling salt?
We are having infestation of this slugs recently. Very curious thing. we are removing 30-50 slugs from our are kitchen farm every night. Location Puliyanmala, Idukki, Kerala.
At last we got its ID. :)
