Phlox paniculata leaves being eaten

I have put some phlox paniculata this year, thinking that they are slug/pest resistant.  However, the leaves are being munched by something, as are the leaves of some nearby nasturtiums (another plant that is slug resistant?) and centaurea.

Any clues please - photo attached?

Please note, all creatures are welcome in my garden, I am just curious as to which one this might be :smile:

    Slugs would be my guess 
    It's often a myth when they tell you certain plants are slug resistant.
    Nasturtiums definitely aren't, or centaurea.  ;)

    I have found the same with my brunnera too :)

    It's just like when you see a list of 'rabbit proof' plants. Load of nonsense! There isn't much they won't have a go at  :D
    I haven't grown brunnera in a very long time, so can't advise on that, but if you have slugs, it's quite likely that the same scenario as the rabbits would arise  ;)
