These, to be honest, aren't members of the Cuspipoda, they are the sitser taxon. In difference to their relatives these animals are sessile. They prefer the shallow waters of Xibalba but a few species are also present in the endless deeps of the global ocean.
Like the Cuspipoda they have "legs" which are consists on one segment and are surrounded by muscles. They feed on plankton with an suction feeding technique. Suddenly they open their "legs" and the resulting vortex draws the microscopic prey animals.

I haven't been following your latest work closely, but I wanted to mention how much I liked these in particular! I'm enjoying looking a the textures you gave them!
I absolutely LOVE this. It's like the awesome crossbreed of the Half-Life barnacles and real ones! And I bet they'd look awesome in an aquarium
I will maybe working on such a aquarium, we have a big, empty one in our class...
Very nice concepts, as always! They remind me of rudists.
So they fill the niche of sponges , corals , barnacles and shellfish.
Yes, partly, but they are not alone
is there anything which would prevent them from being the Sea Anemones of Sylvanus, to also being the Jellyfish of Sylvanus?
They come near the sea anemones but there are some other creatures which come more near jellyfishes
Living pots and jars, with mouths of needles and combs, they sat in silent repose.
Very nice, I like the designs .
You should make animals based off of bobbit worms.
The middle one looks like tapeworms scolex
