A lot of great responses!  Definitely everyone has given me some food for 
thought.  

For polychaetes my largest is now

Eunice aphrodites L: 6m 

and smallest

Dinophilus gyrociliatus L: 0.00005m

Neotenotocha sterrei Male L: 0.00014, Female L: 0.000225

I am still trying to find largest and smallest for the leeches and earthworms 
and for the Siboglinidae.  Several good suggestions...but I am only counting 
published lengths/sizes.  Any help would  be appreciated
