Trochidae or not ?
Hello collectors,
                      I am uncertain if this are trochidae species. Could you kindly help me name this and if this are in the trochidae family?

The shells in the first set are all Herpetopoma species, which were formally placed in Trochidae, but are now I believe in Chilodontidae.  I believe the first 4 pictures are all H. instrictum, and the last two are H. exasperatum.

I believe the shell in the second set is Hybochelus cancellatus, which is also in Chilodontidae.
