looks to be pomacea canaliculata.introduced from south america to south east  asia including philippines as a local food resource.

number 2 and #3 should be Viviparidae, might be genus Filopaludina, wide spread in south east asia. I know some species of this genus from Thailand and Indonesia, but not from the Philippines, I'm sorry.
Kind regards: wolf

Many thanks for the id, I thought #2 & 3 are different specie cause the other one is color white with a black line on the mouth and they are collected in different location. I dont know what you mean not found in the Philippine, cause you can find it in many island here, most specially in the Visayan region, the white colored one, i collect it personally in the area of Luzon  Smile.
Anyway many thanks again for your great help, and to poseidon too  Wink

Happy shelling.

Oh, sorry: #2 and #3 should be different species, true enough. I only mentioned the genus.
There surely are species of the family Viviparidae, genus Filopaludina in the Philippines, but I don't know which species (I'm only familiar with the species of this genus in Thailand and Indonesia). That's what I meant. Sorry for being misunderstandable....... .
Kind regards: wolf
