No identifiable insects underneath leaves, surrounding hostas unaffected. Thanks!

Welcome!

Ligularias are attractive to slugs although why they would go for that and not the hosta, another favourite, I don't know. I would go out after dark with a flashlight, because that's when they're more likely to be out and about.

They look like the cat is using them for a scratching post. Smiling
