well, nr 1 and nr 2 I agree, nr 3 should e cerithium alucaster even in very bad conditions, nr 4 muricopsis cristatus, nr 5 a very interesting form of nassarius nitidus ( similar form I found in northern sardinia island), nr 6 seems to be again muricopsis cristatus, nr 7 nassarius nitidus ordinary form, nr 8 the current name is cerithium vulgatum.
have a good day

can you please confirm then that these are both  realy n. nitidus ? :

They do look much different.

Re: snails, adriatic sea - poseidon - 12-08-2011

yes it is even looks like nassarius reticulatus which any way doesn't live in Adriatic sea.
by the way similar morph , as I said already, could be found in north of sardinia ( let's say olbia).
