I agree it looks like Limacus flavus.

I agree Hema, looks a LOT like Limacus flavus or Limax flavus. Possibly invasive? If so, good to record.

Is the " pneumostome " anterior or posterior to the midpoint of the mantle?

Other families have a pneumostome too?

Kind of looks like some kind of banana slug, Hema :) There are some big native slugs on the west coast. That spot on the side of the mantle looks kind of like a pneumostome to me. ???
