thanks a lot
Good day!

1. 45mm - Casmaria erinaceus - not sure.. I need to see the ventral view.

2. 27mm - Calpurnus verrucosus

3.  ? , Terebra pertusa, Terebra areolata

I would go with C. ponderosa myself, I have almost identical specimens in my collection.
#1 may be Casmaria erinacea or Casmaria ponderosa, not sure which from the picture.  Some forms of the two species are quite similar.  I agree with Raffy's other ID's, and the ? Terebra is Terebra nebulosa  Sowerby, 1825.
Hello Dave r, could this be also a C. ponderosa? This is very small and matured.

Looks like it Raffy, it is a very variable shell with many named forms.
Thanks for the new knowledge Paul on the Terebra! And thanks also for the confirmation on the C. ponderosa!
