Description

Parasitic on dead Mola mola. About 1/2" long, vaguely looked like a tiny horseshoe crab with two tiny claws and a bunch of legs on the underside. Photos show dorsal and ventral views, and what it originally looked like on the mola's skin.

Getting any closer to species may be tricky, since there are more than 40 species of mola skin parasites, according to http://www.centralcoastbiodiversity.org/ocean-sunfish-bull-mola-mola.html.

Description from Wikipedia

Maxillopoda is a diverse class of crustaceans including barnacles, copepods and a number of related animals. It does not appear to be a monophyletic group, and no single character unites all the members.

No range data available.
