Perhaps #2 is Vexillum diutenerum but it is a very small specie, what size is yours ?

Hi Pierre,
I dont think it's V.diutenerum, mine has two distinct color pattern and has fewer vertical ridges, V.diutenerum have a multiple color pattern and have many vertical ridges. i've already search it in but i cannot find any similar features of it in that sight. Anyway the size of #2 is just 15mm. #1 is just 12mm.

              i thank you for your help.

Perhaps the # 2 is Vexillum  (costellaria) militare, Reeve., 1845.
