Planaria or Rhabdocoela?

1765 1
We've got worms in our tank and I can't tell if they are planaria or rhabdocoela. We definitely have hydra and we plan on having breeding shrimp, so we're going to dose dewormer in a few days anyway, but I still want to know what these are.

They're too small for me to see whether they have a pointed or rounded head (I'm afraid I'm going to go cross-eyed staring at them lol) so I'm wondering if anyone with a more trained eye can tell the difference. Are there other parts of the morphology or behaviors that help distinguish them?
