Darwin's polychaetes

Hello folks,

Just a bit of idle curiosity really. We know he was good at finches,
barnacles and earthworms, and at many other things besides those, but what 
about the sea worms? Darwin collected a few around the world. Were any 
described as new species by others?

I can see a couple of McIntosh Challenger species named after him (for no 
particular reason) in Hartman's catalogue, but that's it. 

So, has anyone found any other Darwinian links to Polychaeta?
