Finds in Cuba
Here are two shells found in a tidal zone at Jibacoa, Cuba. I would be grateful if anyone could venture a guess as to what each may be.

Hi Jeff,
## 4 and 5 are terrestrial (!) Cerionidae, genus Cerion (see C. chrysallis, gundlachi, infandum or another species of this genus).
Kind regards: wolf

Hi Jeff,
## 1 to 3 should be Littorinidae, genus Echinolittorina, probably E. angustior or E. ziczac. Perhaps you can compare your specimen with pictures in the www.
Have a good time: wolf

Hi Wolf. I had already did some searching and concluded that it was E. ziczac. Your post confirmed it for me, which I greatly appreciate. Thanks again!
