Hemicycla collarifera gastropod from the Canary Islands

In a previous post I wrote about an insect fossil from the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands.  In the same exchange that gave me that fossil I also received some land snail fossils from the same area.

Below is Hemicycla collarifera which is a low conispiraled gastropod similar to Hemicycla consobrina but has much more pronounced growth lines. 

This fossil is Pleistocene in age and comes from fossilized dune deposits near the town of Bajamar on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain.
