If you move this to Inverts

If you move this to Inverts you might get a likely ID (they don't get awarded in '?').

I think you have

I think you have misunderstood my earlier comment. There are two banded snails in Cepaea: C. hortensis (the White-lipped Snail) and C. nemoralis (the Brown-lipped Snail). These English names describe the usual lip colour, but there is variation where the lip is an atypical colour. While most of the time you will be right working from lip colour, you can't use it as a 100% certain ID character - hence my ID to the genus only.
