#1 no idea
#2 is a Pythia specie (maybe Pythia scarabeus Linne 1758)

#1 appears to be Ergalatax contracta, a rather variable species.

Thanks Pierre & Paul for your help, but i dont think #2 is a Pythia scarabeus, the pseudoumbilicus is different from typical p.scarabeus it seems ressemble to  pythia cecillei, but my specie is  very small and the shape is rather quadrangular.
