Mystery Terrestrial

My name is John Varnava. I am a shell collector from Cyprus I collect shells for more than 20 years now. Mainly sea shells. The last few years I start collecting also land shells but I have many problems with identification.Tha attached photo is a land shell from Cyprus (inland) found under a piece of wood. The size is W.12mm and H.7mm. Can anyone help with the ID.

Thank you,
Regards from Cyprus
