Young snail

This snail was hiding under the broken edge of a fallen log, posed on an oak leaf. The lung is visible through the shell (the pulmonary vein makes an interesting pattern). This individual is probably a young Triodopsis (dark body rules out Mesodon thyroidus), but it has not yet grown the diagnostic lip on its shell opening, so I’m not 100% sure.
