Two more for il-Pine

Hope this does not put you out too much.
Thanks.

ps. Should I have split these in two posts seeing that they are two different species ?

Sorry but forgot to tell you that the first was around 1cm from tip to tip, while the second had a diameter of just under 1 cm.

1st one is the very common Cochlicella acuta. 2nd mollusc is a juvenile, probably of the edible Cantaerus asperus.

One species per post is a guideline to keep the forum organised, but if you are in a hurry, you can ocassionally post more in one. What is more important is to post species for ID in the correct sub-forum (eg snails in mollusca forum not in ID for wild plants !).
