adraitic sea snails

Turritellidae I guess:

Looks like Turritella communis, but exit is very rectangular

3. ?

1. Not Turritellidae.  These are all species of Cerithiidae or Cerithidiidae.  I think there are at least 4 species here.  Some may be Bittium scabrum.  Others may be species of Cerithidiopsis.  I'm not sure of the species.

2. The rectangular mouth is typical of Turritella monterosatoi and Turritella turbona.  This may be a small juvenile of one of those.

3. This is family Rissoidae.  Perhaps Rissoina violacea, not certain.

For start I took out 2 small black:

those should be bittium scabrum ? I see some differences but the same difference is seen here:

Re: adraitic sea snails
my opinion
into the first pic has just only bittium reticulatum, the second pic is showing a turritella turbona ( as long as t. monterosatoi doesn't living in adriatic sea. any how the monterosatoi actually is no longer accepted. in fact seems to be syn. of turbona. meaning that the monterosatoi is just a jumbo size of turbona).
the shell in the last pic seems to be a rissoa labiosa
