what kind of freshwater snail is this.JPG
Description:

Observed near Bingley Island, Canterbury, in the Stour. This snail is quite small, approx. 1cm in length, with an operculum I think, was thinking family Neritidae perhaps, but very unsure. Is the shell dextral? Anyone in the know, please help. Thanks!!

Yes, it is dextral. If it has

Yes, it is dextral. If it has an operculum, then probably a Bithynia. But at first glance it looks more like a Lymnaea, which doesn't have an operculum.
