5 cm can be suitable for both species, although unusually small for triplex. They can be hard to tell apart, but I’ll add saccatum here as another possible ID.

It was roughly 5 cm in diameter – it would’ve been larger, of course, if unfurled.

How big is it?

Maybe saccatum? It’s smaller than triplex and has a more pronounced ring around the peristome.
