I think it maybe a Freshwater Limpet (A Gastropod), if so the population will explode in a month or so and then starve themselves out. Keep an eye on your Ammonia level if this is what they are.

Caveat, I've not personal experience with them but from what I've heard, I would recommend:
A) trying to remove their food source - difficult in a dirted tank but this is normally the route cause of problems such as this so I would normally say gravel vacuuming etc
B) manual removal - not the answer youre after I'm sure and you'll never get all the babies
C) assassin snails - could harm your other snail, also I heard they tend to ignore the limpets until they're large enough
D) accept it and move on
