Snails, Italy and Austria

First one is from North-Italy, Dolomites and second is from Austria, Krimml. Both from last June. And both were quite big, about 10 cm long.

First looks like Roman Snail, Helix pomatia.
The second is an Arion sp- these can be confusing with many species quite similar + also different colour forms. Maybe something like A. ater?
