I do not know if this species has anything to do with Papillifera or not but I leave the ID in the good hands of il-Pine - our forum resident expert on snails.

Probably Cochlicella acuta, a very common widespread mollusc.

OK, so they vary that much in the patterns. I have already posted a snail for ID which was Cochlicella but was rather beige and not contrasting pattern. Thanks, I'll name it as you said. CU Friday.
