Thanks
In looking through some of my other photos of invertebrates and seaweeds I discovered I inadvertently too a couple of photo of small creatures that I think might be polychaets but they may also be insect larva. Would the bugguide be interested in such photos?

 
Arthropods only
BugGuide only works with arthropods, not worms. If there is some question as to which your photos are post them and see. Insect larvae have fewer than 30 apparent segments (only about 12 true segments, sometimes appearing doubled externally) and generally about 10 (+/-) clearly distinct segments.

 
Arthorpod
Based on what you described it is an arthropod. Having technical difficulties in uploading it tonight. I will try again later.
