Maybe

The only thing I can find that is similar is the Common Bulin (Ena obscura) it discribes it as 8mm when fully grown found in leaf litter and climbs trees in wet weather,hope this helps,oh not sure this should be in invertabrates section

Thank you very much for

Thank you very much for that.Having looked at some pics online I am thinking your id is right as the Bulin looks like a bigger snail with a more elongated shell.

They will make a nice addition to my garden wildlife
