Unknown Cuban landsnails

Unknown Cuban landsnails
Hello everybody!!

Here are two Cuban landsnails which are almost identical (one is lighter than the other). They were collected in 2007, but I have no idea what they are. Can anyone offer some help?
I'm sorry about the poor light in the photos, but the Spanish fog has made it difficult to take crisp photos.

Best wishes,

might be Zachrysia provisoria (Pfeiffer, 1858) (Camaenidae), but there are several other species of this genus in Cuba and I have no papers here to distinguish them.

I've contrasted images from the internet and they look to be this species. Thanks for all your help Smile Best wishes, Emma.
