Worms on Top Crown snail shell

Mcasella

Just wanted to share this shot I got this morning of one of my top crown snails with hitchhikers (it also has a larger live barnacle). Not sure if these are truly keelworms like I've researched as they do not look quite right.
Sorry about the blue, don't have reef lenses yet to balance that.

Tiny starfish maybe?

They are actual worms, they withdraw in the tubes that are on the shell. This is another angle right after I brought them home. (And the barnacle on the top snail is alive, the bottom snail has two or three small live barnacles and one worm, plus some sponge like growth near the coraline on the shell.)

So they are, the angle plus me being on my phone didn't help
I agree that they don't look like keelworms. Maybe try looking at a pest database and see what looks the closest.
