Two round snails

Observation - Two round snails - UK and Ireland. Description: These two snail shells were found in the garden, where the heat from the south-facing wall of the house makes a warm micro-climate. There is a low drystone wall with aubretia and common toadflax growing on the top. The larger of the two was an empty shell

These two snail shells were found in the garden, where the heat from the south-facing wall of the house makes a warm micro-climate. There is a low drystone wall with aubretia and common toadflax growing on the top. The larger of the two was an empty shell which I found some time ago, but the smaller snail was alive. I now think they are different species.
