Rescued from cardboard eating critters

Struggling to i.d. these two gastropods while rehousing them in a new box, this is the note that was left inside the original box by the owner of the fossils.

Any help would be appreciated as to their identity.

Hi there!
I'm wondering if the first one couldn't be a Neptunea species. Maybe Neptunea lyrata ?

If I'm not wrong, Neptunea is present in the Pleistocene Red Crag.

Thank you @abyssunder Neptunea lyrata seems to be a likely candidate.

Hi @Coco thank you for the link. Is it for a extant species. Or for a fossil as is the case here.

Looks like Spinucella tetragona to me, or it could be another Spinucella species.

Thank you @Taogan that link has some real great possibilities.

Hmm. It is very tricky. Maybe it's Nucella, as Coco said. Possibly Nucella incrassata?
