The book ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FISHES (1st ed.) has a color photo (p. 37) of a female
deepsea angler fish -- Haplophryne mollis -- with not one but two parasitic
males attached. (This book is available at all major outlets. Alhough short on
NA fishes, it's a nice intro to fish diversity.)

If you really want to see it, I'll scan the photo and ask Jay to temporarily
post it on his website. Although we are breaking international copyright law in
so doing.
